## Decimal division

All the divisions do not give a whole number as an answer. Hence when we divide one number by another number, sometimes we arrive at a whole number other than 0 as the remainder.

Decimal divisions are such divisions where we do not stop with a remainder and continue dividing until we reach 0 as the remainder or arrive at the same remainder again.

The important part of a decimal division is that the decimal point is marked when the divisor is greater than the divisor. Note that after adding a decimal, we can add zeros to the remainder in each step to make it divisible.

The long division method is an easy method to convert the fractions to decimals.

Let us take the example of fraction to use the long division method to find the decimal form of the fraction.

Write the fraction in the division form with the numerator as the dividend and the denominator as the divisor.

It can be seen that we are adding 0’s ( red) in each step to make the remainder divisible by 16.

The quotient that we get is the decimal form of the fraction.
