## Writing fractions as decimals

To convert a fraction to a decimal, we divide the numerator by the denominator.

If we have a mixed number, the whole number stays to the left of the decimal.

**Example 1: $\dfrac25$**

**Example 2: $3\dfrac78$**

$\redC3$ stays to the left of the decimal. Then, we divide $\blueD7$ by $\greenD8$.
