Converting fractions to decimals?

First, convert one eighth into a decimal.

'One eighth' is expressed as a fraction, and to work out the decimal, you first need to understand what it really means.

Every number is a fraction, all you do is place the number over 1.

The fraction bar means 'divided by'. Knowing this, it's easy to work out this answer.

One eighth = 1/8 or 1 DIVIDED BY 8.

Pop this in your calculator, and you should get 0.125.

Add the 5, and your answer is 5.125.

NB: The same operation is used for all fractions.
