Q1: Explain how to convert a fraction into a decimal.

  • Find a number you can multiply by the bottom of the fraction to make it 10, or 100, or 1000, or any 1 followed by 0s.

    Multiply both top and bottom by that number.

    Then write down just the top number, putting the decimal point in the correct spot (one space from the right hand side for every zero in the bottom number)
