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. 
9
      10  = 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       8
        5  =   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. 
12
       16    12 divided by 16 = 0.75
