Converting Fractions to decimals |

Option 1 * The fraction is already in the form of numerator over denominator; the denominator is a power of 10 (10, 100, 1000, etc.) * I can use the numerator to write the number in standard form. Ex. 910 = 0.9 |

Option 2 * The fraction is already in the form of numerator over denominator; the denominator is a factor of a power of 10. * I can convert the fraction to the equivalent fraction which has a power of ten as a denominator. * Follow option 1. Ex. 4 85 = 10 = 0.8 |

Option 3 * When option 1 and 2 don't work... * Divide the numerator by the denominator. The quotient is a decimal. Ex. 1216 12 divided by 16 = 0.75 |
