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 32 by the denominator 40:
32 (numerator) ÷ 40 (denominator) = 0.8
As a result, you get 0.8 as your answer when you convert 32/40 to a decimal.
