# Converting Fractions to Decimals

## Long division method

Divide the numerator (the number above the fraction line) by the denominator (the number below the fraction line).

Keep dividing until you either get a remainder of 0 or you have enough decimal places for the desired precision.

## Example

Let's convert 5/8 to a decimal.

5/8 = 0.625 as a decimal.

## Fraction to decimal conversion chart

Memorize or refer to a conversion chart where common fractions are already converted to decimals.

Example:

Using a conversion chart, you can see that 1/4 = 0.25, 1/2 = 0.5, 3/4 = 0.75, etc.

Both methods are effective for converting fractions to decimals. The long division method is useful when dealing with fractions that are not easily recognized as terminating decimals, while the conversion chart method can be quicker for commonly encountered fractions. Choose the method that works best for you based on the fraction you're converting and your preference.
