### How do you fractions as decimals?

You undertake a long division.
Any fraction is a rational number and so its decimal
representation must be terminating or recurring. A terminating
decimal will mean that the long division reaches a point when the
remainder is zero. A recurring decimal sequence is equivalent to
the long division going through a cycle of remainders.
