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 40 by the denominator 82:
40 (numerator) ÷ 82 (denominator) = 0.49
As a result, you get 0.49 as your answer when you convert 40/82 to a decimal.
