In order to convert fractions to decimals we will divide numerator and denominator by using long-division algorithm. Divide two numbers using the following rules. If two integers are divided you have to place the decimal point in the quotient (the final solution) directly above the decimal point in the dividend. Divide as usual, taking care to align the quotient so that the decimal point falls into place. Place each digit in the dividend just over the last digit in the dividend used in that cycle.
