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 145 by the denominator 50:
145 (numerator) ÷ 50 (denominator) = 2.9
As a result, you get 2.9 as your answer when you convert 2 45/50 (or 145/50) to a decimal.
