Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we are going to look at converting fractions to decimals.

This is an important skill when we want to compare fractions and decimals.

The fraction

 2 10

means 2 ÷ 10 and is therefore 0.2 written as a decimal.

The fraction

 2 7

written as a decimal is less obvious.

To convert this fraction we can use the bus stop method or use a calculator.

We have to do the calculation 2 ÷ 7 = 0.286 to 3 decimal places.

Let's try some questions.
