About Fraction to Decimal:

To change a fraction into a decimal, we divide the numerator by the denominator. When dealing with a proper fraction, the numerator or dividend is smaller than the denominator or divisor. Recall that we can add zeros after the decimal point in order to perform the division in this scenario.
