Converting 4/5 to a decimal is quite possibly one of the easiest calculations you can make. In this (very short) guide, we'll show you how to turn any fraction into a decimal in 3 seconds of less! Here we go!

Want to quickly learn or show students how to convert 4/5 to a decimal? Play this very quick and fun video now!

First things first, if you don't know what a numerator and a denominator are in a fraction, we need to recap that:

4 (numerator)/5 (denominator)

Here's the little secret you can use to instantly transform any fraction to a decimal: **Simply divide the numerator by the denominator:**

= 4/5

= 4 ÷ 5

= 0.8

That's literally all there is to it! 4/5 as a decimal is 0.8.

I wish I had more to tell you about converting a fraction into a decimal but it really is that simple and there's nothing more to say about it.

If you want to practice, grab yourself a pen and a pad and try to calculate some fractions to decimal format yourself. If you're *really feeling lazy* you can use our calculator below instead!

## Why would you want to convert 4/5 to a decimal?

This is a great question. We have lots of calculations on this site about converting a fraction into a decimal but why would you want or need to do that in the first place?

Well, first of all it's just a good way to represent a fraction in a better way that allows you to do common arithmetic with them (like addition, subtration, division and multiplication).

In real life, we mostly deal with decimals (like currency, for example) and since our brains are taught from a young age to understand and compare decimals more often than they are fractions, it's easier to understand and compare fractions if they are converted to a decimal first!

Here's a little real life example of converting a fraction to a decimal when using quantities. Let's say you're cooking and you can usually see fractionally how much of an ingredient is left in a pack. However, electronic scales measure weight in decimals and not as a fraction of the ingredient left. This makes converting between fractions and decimals a useful skill in cooking.

Hopefully this tutorial has helped you to understand how to convert a fraction to a decimal number. You can now go forth and convert fractions to decimal as much as your little heart desires!
