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 17 by the denominator 123:
17 (numerator) ÷ 123 (denominator) = 0.14
As a result, you get 0.14 as your answer when you convert 17/123 to a decimal.
