Work Step by Step
The simplest way to do this is to plug it into a calculator. However, if you do not have a calculator available to you, you can solve by long division. Do this by multiplying 7/15 by 10, which equals 70/15. Now proceed to preform long division on 70/15. You will end up with a 4.666 (the 6 is repeating). You then divide this answer by 10 (since you multiplied the original by 10) to get .466 (the 6 is repeating). To simplify, round to the nearest thousandth to get an approximate answer. You will get 0.467.
