Answer & Explanation
Divide 8 by 25
8 divided by 25 is dividing the numerator of the fraction by the denominator 25.
0.32 is in decimal form because fractions are converted into decimal form by dividing the numerator by the denominator.
One method for converting a fraction to a decimal is to change the denominator to a power of 10, such as 10, 100, 1000, or 10,000.
For some fractions this is possible such as with denominators of: 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 16, 20, 25, 40, 50, etc... Noticeably absent from this list are numbers which are prime numbers or multiples of 3, 7 etc.
Top and bottom should be multiplied by the same number to obtain an equivalent fraction. This is equivalent to multiplying by 1, which has no effect on a number's value.
If the denominator cannot be changed into a power of 10, then you have to divide the numerator by the denominator.
This is a recurring decimal.
It can be shown as or rounded off to a suitable level of accuracy.
