__Objective__

At the end of this lesson, students should be able to write fractions in the decimal form.

In the same way that decimals can be written as fractions, fractions can also be written in the decimal form.

** **

__Example 1__

**Write these fractions as decimals.**

Fractions with denominators other than 10,100 or 1000 can also be converted to decimals.

**The following steps may guide you when changing such fractions to decimals:**

__Example 2__

**Convert these fractions to decimals.**

Sometimes you may be asked to convert fractions whose denominators are not factors of 10, 100 or 1000 to decimals. For such fractions, divide the numerator by the denominator (using long division) to get your decimal.

__Example 3__

**Change these to decimals.**

**For fractions with whole numbers, the whole number comes before the decimal point, and then the fraction part comes after the decimal point.**

__Example 4__

**Write the decimal equivalent of these fractions.**
