A fraction is written in terms of two parts: the number on top is called the numerator and the number on the bottom is called the denominator. We can use the division method to solve this question. To get a decimal, simply divide the numerator 142 by the denominator 116:
142 (numerator) ÷ 116 (denominator) = 1.22
As a result, you get 1.22 as your answer when you convert 142/116 to a decimal.
