Difficulty level:   ### QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet, we will learn how to convert fractions to decimals.

Example

The fraction 2/10 means 2 ÷ 10 and is therefore 0.2 written as decimal.

2/7 written as decimal is less obvious. It can be calculated immediately with a calculator, but can also be found manually by dividing. This shows that 2/7 as a decimal is 0.285714.....

This rounds to 0.2857 to 4 decimal places.
