#### Worksheet Overview

Great effort! You have decided to spend some time practising for the SATs Maths tests.

This activity is going to focus on practising your ability to convert between decimal numbers and fractions.

You will also be asked to compare and order decimals and fractions.

Fractions, decimal numbers and percentages are just three ways of saying the same thing.

1⁄2 = 0.5 = 50%

Fractions, decimals and percentages all represent parts of a whole.

All three of these Maths terms look quite different but don't worry, this activity is a great way for you to learn about the relationship between them.

How do we convert a fraction to a decimal number?

To convert a fraction to a decimal number, we divide its numerator (top number) by its denominator (bottom number).

The line separating a fraction has the same meaning as the ÷ sign.

1⁄2 = 1 ÷ 2= 0.5

3⁄4 = 3 ÷ 4 = 0.75

Remember to use the bus stop method of division to help you solve the calculation.

Over to you now to have a go at some practice questions...good luck!
