# How do you convert fractions to decimal notation?

Apr 17, 2016

Divide the numerator by the denominator

#### Explanation:

$\frac{a}{b}$ is a÷b= x
when $a$= 1 , $b$ = 4, then $x$ = 1÷4

1÷4 = 0.25

0.25 is $\frac{1}{4}$ in decimal notation and to convert x into a percent just multiply $x$ by 100

so $\frac{a}{b}$ is $x$ in decimal notation and $x \left(100\right)$ = x%

$\frac{1}{4}$(100)=25%
