## What is meant by Fraction to Decimal?

In Mathematics, Fraction is defined as the ratio of two numbers. It means the ratio of numerator value to the denominator value. A decimal number is a number whose whole number and decimal part are separated by a decimal point. In order to change a fraction to decimal, simplify the fraction as much as possible. When the fraction is simplified we get the decimal number.

### Procedure to find Fraction to Decimal

You might need to convert a number to different forms to represent a number differently. There are several methods to convert a fraction to decimal. Check out some of the methods outlined below.

Long Division Method

Long Division provides a way to convert fraction to decimal form. You should identify the dividend and divisor first and then use those values in the long division. In the given fraction numerator will be the dividend and denominator will be the divisor. Represent the dividend and divisor in the form of long division. You likely need to add a decimal and zeros if the dividend is smaller than the divisor.

Solve the long division to convert from fractions to decimals. Therefore fraction 3/4 in decimal value is 0.75

Simplifying

An alternate method to convert fractions to decimals is to simplify the fraction. This needs a few steps. Initially, multiply the denominator to get to 100. before doing this step, try dividing 100 with the denominator to know the multiple and multiply both numerator and denominator by the multiple.

The last step is to move the decimal place on the new numerator to the left two places to change a fraction to its decimal value.

Example

Convert 1/4 to a decimal using the simplifying method?

Solution:

Firstly find the multiple to multiply the denominator to obtain 100

100 = 4*25

Multiple is 25. Multiply both the numerator and denominator by multiple and the result is as follows

1/4 = 25/100

Finally, move the numerator's decimal place to left two places to get the decimal value.

25.0 -> 0.25

Decimal Value of 1/4 is 0.25
