Methods
Explanation using the division method:
A fraction is usually split into two parts: the first part is the number on top, called the numerator; and the second part is the number on the bottom, called the denominator. These are both separated by a line called the “divisor line”. We can use the division method help to solve this question: to get a decimal, simply divide the numerator 89 by the denominator 40 (which you can enter in any calculator):
89 (numerator) ÷ 40 (denominator) = 2.23
And finally, you get 2.23 as your answer when you convert 89/40 to a decimal.
