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 285 by the denominator 608:
285 (numerator) ÷ 608 (denominator) = 0.47
As a result, you get 0.47 as your answer when you convert 285/608 to a decimal.
