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 140 by the denominator 44:
140 (numerator) ÷ 44 (denominator) = 3.18
As a result, you get 3.18 as your answer when you convert 3 8/44 (or 140/44) to a decimal.
