Question 1: Convert 4/8 to decimal form.

Solution:

Step 1: First off, the fraction bar to mean “divided by.” This means

that 4/8 is the same as 4 divided by 8.

Step 2: One decimal places are answer, the 4 as 4.0 instead (a 4 with 1 zeros after the decimal point).

Step 3: The fraction bar says: divide 4.0 by 8:

Step 4: The 4 divided by 8 fraction decimal value is 0.5

Question 2: Convert 5/8 to decimal form.

Solution:

Step 1: The fraction bar to mean “divided by.” This means that 5/8 is the same as 5 divided by 8.

Step 2: The 3 decimal places are answer, the 5 as 5.000 instead (a 5 with 3 zeros after the decimal point).

Step 3: The fraction bar says: divide 5.000 by 8:

Step 4: The 5 divided by 8 fraction decimal value is 0.625

Question 3: 12 divided by 8 converts to decimal form.

Solution:

Step 1: The fraction bar to mean “divided by.” This means that 12/8 is the same as 12 divided by 8.

Step 2: The 2 decimal places are answer, the 12 as 12.00 instead (a 12 with 2 zeros after the decimal point).

Step 3: The fraction bar says: divide 12.00 by 8:

Step 4: The 4 divided by 8 fraction decimal value is 1.50

Question 4: Convert 5/4 to decimal.

Step 1 : we know that, 4 is the denominator So, 4 × 25 = 100
