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 284 by the denominator 286:
284 (numerator) ÷ 286 (denominator) = 0.99
As a result, you get 0.99 as your answer when you convert 284/286 to a decimal.
