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 31 by the denominator 14 (which you can enter in any calculator):
31 (numerator) ÷ 14 (denominator) = 2.21
And finally, you get 2.21 as your answer when you convert 31/14 to a decimal.
