• Question 1

Change the following fraction to a decimal.

 3 4
=
0.75
EDDIE SAYS
The easist way to do this if you can't just see it is to start with the number 1, 1 &div: 4 = 0.25 0.25 x 3 = 0.75
• Question 2

Change the following fraction to a decimal.

 3 8
=
0.375
EDDIE SAYS
The easist way to do this if you can't just see it is to start with the number 1, 1 &div: 8 = 0.125 0.125 x 3 = 0.375
• Question 3

Change the following fraction to a decimal.

 10 25
=
0.4
EDDIE SAYS
This can be converted into a a fraction over 100 10/25 = 40/100
• Question 4

Change the following fraction to a decimal.

 9 2
=
4.5
EDDIE SAYS
The easist way to do this if you can't just see it is to start with the number 1, 1 &div: 2 = 0.5 0.5 x 9 = 4.5
• Question 5

Change the following fraction to a decimal.

 4 25
=
0.16
EDDIE SAYS
This can be converted into a fraction over 100 4/25 = 16/100
• Question 6

Change the following fraction to a decimal.

 17 15
=

1.133
EDDIE SAYS
The only method to do this without a calculator is to use long division
• Question 7

Change the following fraction to a decimal.

 5 8
=
0.625
EDDIE SAYS
This is another one where you can change it to a number over 100 5/8 = 125/200 = 62.5/100
• Question 8

Change the following fraction to a decimal.

 14 24
=

0.583
EDDIE SAYS
The only method to complete this without a calculator is to use long division
• Question 9

Change the following fraction to a decimal.

 7 8
=
0.875
EDDIE SAYS
yet another one here that can be changed into a number over 100 7/8 = 175/200 = 87.5/100
• Question 10

Change the following fraction to a decimal.

 12 18
=

0.667
EDDIE SAYS
If we simplify this down first we get 2/3. This is a standard result that you should know. If you can't do it straight away, use long division to find the answer
