Divide it by the divisor (the denominator).

To turn a remainder into a fraction you just put the remainder over the dividend. To turn a remainder into a decimal put a decimal in the divisor and in the answer so far, put a zero, bring the zero down and divide what you now have. If that does not come out evenly add another zero in the dividend and do that until it come out evenly

Divide it by the divisor as for example 14/5 = 2 remainder 4 and 4/5 = 0.8 So: 14/5 = 2.8

A decimal without a remainder is a whole number or integer.

The only way, without a calculator, that I know of is long division.

Divide 11 by 15 untilthe remainder is 0, orthe decimal representation goes into a finite string which keeps repeating.

Yes there is. The real problem is just inverting the remainder into the decimal for the answer.

Converting it to fraction in its lowest term e.g. 4.6 = 23/5 which is 4 rem 3
