How to Convert a Fraction to a Decimal Support Page

Converting Fractions to Decimal Form

To convert a fraction to a decimal, you need to understand that the fraction sign — and the division sign ÷ are actually the same!

So in other words:     a b   =   a ÷ b

If you use a calculator, it is quite easy to convert a fraction into a decimal. If you do not have a calculator, you can still convert a fraction into a decimal using long (or short) division.

How to convert a fraction to a decimal

• Take the numerator of the fraction and divide it by the denominator.
• Your calculator will now display the fraction as a decimal.

Examples

Example 1) Convert   3 8 to a decimal.

We calculate 3 ÷ 8 = 0.375.

So we now have:

3 8   =   3 ÷ 8 = 0.375

Example 2) Convert   9 20 to a decimal.

We calculate 9 ÷ 20 = 0.45.

So we now have

9 20   =   9 ÷ 20 = 0.45
