# How to convert fractions into decimals?

#### Understand the Problem

The question is asking for the method or process to convert fractions into their decimal equivalents. This typically involves division, where the numerator of the fraction is divided by the denominator.

Divide the numerator by the denominator

To convert fractions into decimals, divide the numerator by the denominator. For example, to convert 3/4 to a decimal, divide 3 by 4, which equals 0.75.

#### Steps to Solve

1. Identify fraction parts

Recognize the parts of the fraction:

• Numerator: the number above the fraction line
• Denominator: the number below the fraction line

For example, in the fraction $\frac{3}{4}$:

• 3 is the numerator
• 4 is the denominator
1. Set up division

Set up the division problem by placing the numerator as the dividend and the denominator as the divisor.

For $\frac{3}{4}$, set up:

$3 \div 4$

1. Perform division

Carry out the division, using a calculator if needed. If the division doesn't result in a terminating decimal, round to an appropriate number of decimal places.

For $3 \div 4$:

$3 \div 4 = 0.75$

Therefore, $\frac{3}{4} = 0.75$ in decimal form.

To convert fractions into decimals, divide the numerator by the denominator. For example, to convert 3/4 to a decimal, divide 3 by 4, which equals 0.75.
