In general, the word form of a fraction tells you what you can divide to generate the equivalent fraction. For instance, three fourths can be converted to a decimal by completing the problem "three divided by four."

If the denominator is a multiple of ten, the word form of a fraction can tell you how many places are to the right of a decimal, as in the case 37/100 = "thirty-seven hundredths" = 0.37. Since the denominator is hundredths, you know that the decimal has two places to its right.
