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 37 by the denominator 17:
37 (numerator) ÷ 17 (denominator) = 2.18
As a result, you get 2.18 as your answer when you convert 37/17 to a decimal.
