# Fraction to Decimal Calculator

Fraction to Decimal calculator is used to express the given fraction into its corresponding decimal form. Numbers that are represented in the form of p/q are known as fractions, where q is not equal to 0.

## What is Fraction to Decimal Calculator?

Fraction to Decimal calculator converts a fractional number to its decimal value. A decimal number is used to represent a whole part and a fractional part together. To use the * Fraction to Decimal Calculator*, enter the values of the numerator and the denominator in the given input boxes.

## How Does Fraction to Decimal Calculator Work?

Fractions and decimals are different ways of representing numbers. There are two methods to convert a fraction to a decimal. These are given as follows:

- The numerator of the fraction acts as the dividend.
- The denominator of the fraction acts as the divisor.
- We divide the numerator by the denominator using long division.
- The quotient obtained will be the decimal form of the given fraction.
- If the remainder is 0, the decimal form of the fraction will be terminating.
- Suppose the remainder is not equal to 0. This implies that a digit or a group of digits in the quotient is repeating and non-terminating. A bar over the digit (or digits) is used to indicate non-terminating values.

**2. Converting the denominator**

- We multiply the denominator of the fraction by a number that converts the denominator into a power of 10. Let the power be denoted by n.
- The numerator is multiplied by the same number.
- Shift the decimal point n places to the left, starting from the last digit of the number.
- This converts the fraction into a decimal.
