# What is 3/20 as a decimal?

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

## Answer: 3/20 as a decimal is equal to 0.15.

Let's convert the given fraction to a decimal.

**Explanation:**

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

Here the fraction is 3/20 which means we need to perform 3 ÷ 20.

### Alternate Method:

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

So, we re-write 3/20 as (3/20) × 100/100.

So, (3/20) × 100 = 3 × 5 = 15

Now, 15 ÷ 100 = 0.15

Therefore, 3/20 = (3/20) × 100/100 = 15/100 = 0.15
