 A fraction is a number which can be written in the form of “p/q”. Here ‘p’ is the numerator which can be any integer and ‘q’ is

the denominator which can be any integer except 0. This fraction can be converted to a decimal by dividing the numerator with

the denominator. The online calculation tool used to convert given two numbers into fractions is called as Fraction calculator.


Example 1: Write the decimal form when 12 is divided by 36.


Given 12 is the numerator and 36 is the denominator and can be written as 12/36.

Factoring the numerator and denominator gives.

12 = 2*2*3 and  36 = 2*2*3*3

Now when these numbers are written as fractions there are some common factors.

Cancelling the common factors we get  12/36= 1/ 3

1/3 can be converted to decimal by dividing ‘3’ with ‘1’ which gives quotient as 0.33 (taking only 2 decimal places)

Hence the decimal form when 12 is divided by 36 is 0.33
 


Example 2: Write the decimal form when 48 is divided by 45.


Given 48 is the numerator and 45 is the denominator and can be written as 48/45.

Factoring the numerator and denominator gives.

48 = 2*2*2*2*3 and 45 = 3*3*5

Now when these numbers are written as fractions there are some common factors.

Therefore cancelling the common factors 48/45 can be written as 16/15

16/15 can be converted to decimal by dividing ‘16’ with ‘15’ which gives quotient as 1.06 (taking only 2 decimal places)

Hence the decimal when 48 is divided by 45 is 1.06
