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 65537 by the denominator 256:
65537 (numerator) ÷ 256 (denominator) = 256.0
As a result, you get 256.0 as your answer when you convert 256 1/256 (or 65537/256) to a decimal.
