How do you simplify and make the fraction 7/8 into a decimal?
Perform the indicated division operation.
A "fraction" is a representation of a ratio, or relative pairing of values. Sometimes the fractional form is more precise, but in all cases it can be converted into a "decimal" number simply by recognizing the fraction notation as identical to the notation we use for division.
In this case we have a specific value (no repeating terms), so it is equivalent in accuracy to the original fraction.
