# What is one fourth as a decimal?

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

## Answer: 1/4 as a decimal is equal to 0.25.

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 1/4 which means we need to perform 1 ÷ 4.

### Alternate Method:

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

So, we re-write 1/4 as (1/4) × (100/100)

- 1/4 = [(100/4) ÷ 100].
- 100/4 = 25
- 25 ÷ 100 = 0.25
- So, 1/4 = 0.25.
