Fraction to Decimal Conversion
To know about fraction to decimal conversion, we first need to know their definitions individually.
A fraction is basically defined as the ratio of two numbers p and q such that p/q where q is not equal to zero. Here p is called numerator and q is called denominator value.
A decimal number is basically defined as a number whose whole number part and the decimal part is separated by the decimal point.
Coming to the conversion, to convert the fraction into a decimal, we need to follow theses steps
- Simplify the fraction as much as possible to its simplest form (Example: 25/100 to 1/4)
- Then do a division to convert it into a decimal number (Example 1/4 to 0.25)
- In some cases, the decimal is never-ending (recurring or repeating decimal), in that case round it off accordingly.
