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 23 by the denominator 442:
23 (numerator) ÷ 442 (denominator) = 0.05
As a result, you get 0.05 as your answer when you convert 23/442 to a decimal.
