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 4 by the denominator 17:
4 (numerator) ÷ 17 (denominator) = 0.24
As a result, you get 0.24 as your answer when you convert 4/17 to a decimal.
