## Fraction to Decimal Converter

Many students are facing problems with Fraction to Decimal calculation. So here we have a solution for your maths problem. If you want to convert fraction into decimal numbers. You need to make sure which one is numerator and denominator. 3
4
=
Numerator
Denominator

Here are some decimal and fraction equivalents…

6/10=0.6

2/10=0.2

4/10=0.4

73/10=0.73

Any Fraction to show as a decimal is most easily done. If it is a denominator of 10,100 or 1000.

So if we have 9/10=0.9

## What if our fraction Denominator is not 10,100 or 1000?

At this movement we are going to use strategy:

Make a new equivalent fraction with a base 10 Denominator.

Example.

4
5

Here we have denominator 5, we need to turn that to denominator 10. Now we are going to multiply by 2. Now it's 10. And we also have to multiply the numerator by 2.

Ans
=
0.8

This strategy is easy and quick. So make an equivalent fraction (Denominator of 10, 100 or 1000).

## What if you get a mixed number?

A simple fraction is too easy. But, if you see a mixed fraction number. It looks difficult for you. But if you are using our Fraction to Decimal calculator it looks so easy for every student. Let’s check practically...

This is the first way to change a Fraction to decimal. It only works where you can make an equivalent fraction with a denominator of 10,100 or 1000. For other Fractions. Where you can’t make a base - 10 denominators. There’s another step you can take to make it work!

## How to Convert a Fraction to a Decimal

If you don’t need this type of calculation and you want to direct your answer. Please check out the fraction to decimal calculator. It’s so simple to use. Here we have two types of calculators. 1) Simple Fraction Calculator and 2) Mixed Fraction Calculator. You can also check our Decimal to Fraction Calculator.

Here you can see simple steps for converting decimal numbers to fraction.

Step1:

Find a number you can multiply by the bottom of the fraction to make it 10, or 100, or 1000, or any.

Step2:

Multiply both top and bottom by that number.

Step3:

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).

## Example:Convert 3/4 to a Decimal

Step1:

We can multiply 4 by 25 to become 100

Step2:

Multiply top and bottom by 25:

3
4
×
25
25
=
75
100
Step3:

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

Ans
=
0.75

## Example: Convert 3/16 to a Decimal

Step1:

We can multiply 16 by 625 to become 10,000

Step2:

Multiply top and bottom by 625:

3
16
×
625
625
=
1875
10000
Step3:

Write down 1875 with the decimal point 4 spaces from the right (because 10000 has 4 zeros)

Ans
=
0.1875

## Example:Convert 3(20/24) to a Decimal

Put the 3 aside and just work on 20/24

Step1:

We can multiply 24 by 417 to become 10,000

Step2:

Multiply top and bottom by 625:

20
24
×
417
417
=
8333
10000
Step3:

Write down 8333 with the decimal point 4 spaces from the right (because 10000 has 4 zeros)

Bring back the 3 (to make a decimal): Add into step 3

Ans
=
3.8333
