With the convenience of the fraction to decimal converter aside, let’s not forget the importance of being able to manually convert fractions into decimals on paper.
Fractions are made up of two parts. The numerator and the denominator a/b.
The line which separates the numerator and denominator can be replaced with the division symbol (÷).
So to convert a fraction to a decimal we simply divide the numerator by the denominator a÷b
Of course, if either or both of these have long digits the division gets more complicated so a calculator maybe needed.
