In conversion of fraction to decimal fraction the rules are discussed here.

*(i) If it is a proper fraction, write the numerator as a decimal.(ii) If it is a mixed fraction, convert it to an improper fraction.(iii) Divide as usual. Add as many zeroes after the decimal to the numerator as required, to complete the division.*

**Let us consider some of the examples:**

**(i)** Convert ½ to decimal.

*Solution:*

1 ÷ 2

Therefore, ½ = 0.5

**(ii)** Convert 2/5 to decimal

*Solution:*

2 ÷ 5

Therefore, 2/5 = 0.4

**(iii)** Convert 7/8 to decimal
*Solution:*

7 ÷ 8

Therefore, 7/8 = 0.875

**A whole number is a decimal with as many decimal places as required**

**For example:**

4 = 4.0

= 4.00

= 4.000

= 4.0000

All the above are equal to whole number 4.

**(iv)** Convert 7 5/8 to decimal
*Solution:*

7 5/8

= (7 × 8 + 5)/8

= (56 + 5)/8

= 61/8

Therefore, 7 5/8 = 7.625
