How to convert fractions into decimals?

To convert a Fraction to a Decimal, follow these steps:

Step 1: Find a number you can multiply by the bottom of the fraction to make it 10 or a multiple of 10.

Step 2: Multiply both top and bottom by that number.

Step 3. Then write down just the top number, putting the decimal point in the correct spot (one space from the right-hand side for every zero in the bottom number).

For example:

Convert $\frac{3}{4}$ a Decimal.

Step 1: We can multiply 4 by 25 to become 100

Step 2: Multiply top and bottom by 25:


Step 3: Write down 75 with the decimal point 2 spaces from the right (because 100 has 2 zeros).
