# What is 3/16 as a decimal?

Both fractions and decimals are just two ways to represent the same numbers.

## Answer: 3/16 as a decimal is equal to 0.1875.

Let's convert the given fraction to a decimal number.

**Explanation:**

To convert any fraction to decimal form, we just need to divide its numerator by denominator.

Here the fraction is 3/16 which means we need to perform 3 ÷ 16.

It is difficult to perform a division when a dividend is less than the divisor.

So, we re-write 3/16 as (300/16) ÷ 100.

So, 300/16 = 18.75

Now, 18.75 ÷ 100 = 0.1875.

Therefore, 3/16 = (300/16) ÷ 100 = (18.75) ÷ 100 = 0.1875
