Divide 8 by 25

Explanation:

8 divided by 25 is dividing the numerator of the fraction $\frac{8}{25}$ by the denominator 25.

$8\xf725=0.32$

0.32 is $\frac{8}{25}$ in decimal form because fractions are converted into decimal form by dividing the numerator by the denominator.

Explanation:

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.

$\frac{8\times 4}{25\times 4}=\frac{32}{100}=0.32\Rightarrow (\frac{4}{4}=1)$

If the denominator cannot be changed into a power of 10, then you have to divide the numerator by the denominator.

$\frac{3}{7}=3\xf77=0.4285714285\dots .$ This is a recurring decimal.

It can be shown as $\stackrel{\u2015}{0.428571}$ or rounded off to a suitable level of accuracy.$\frac{3}{7}\approx 0.429$
