How to Convert Fractions to Decimal

Convert a fraction to a decimal by dividing the numerator by the denominator

Convert a Fraction to Decimal Method #1

The simplest method to get a decimal value of a fraction is to simply divide the numerator by the denominator to get the decimal value. For example, if the fraction is 1/4, take 1 ÷ 4 = 0.25. The decimal value of 1/4 is 0.25.

Convert a Fraction to Decimal Method #2

An alternate method is to multiply the denominator to get to 100. To do this, try dividing 100 by the denominator to find the multiple, then multiplying the numerator and denominator by the multiple. For example, to get 1/4 as a fraction over 100, take 100 ÷ 4 = 25. Then multiply the numerator and the denominator by 25. For example, 1/4 = (1 × 25) / (4 × 25) = 25/100.

Once you have the fraction as a numerator over 100, simply divide both the numerator and the denominator by 100 to get the decimal value. Continuing our example, 25/100 = (25 ÷ 100) / (100 ÷ 100) = .25/1 = .25.
