Converting Fractions to Decimals
These fractions need to be converted to decimals, but no calculator is needed. Scholars examine two examples which explain the process briefly before completing 16 fractions with denominators of either 10 or 100. For the next section they convert more complex fractions using long division, again with an example as guidance.
