Work Step by Step
A great way to turn fractions into decimals is to make the denominator (bottom of the fraction) 10. We multiply 3/5 by 2/2 (this is allowed because 2/2 equals 1) to get 6/10. We now use a straightforward rule. Whenever a number is divided by 10, move the decimal on the number one to the left. We move the decimal on the numerator, 6.0, one to the left to get .6.
