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 400 by the denominator 740:
400 (numerator) ÷ 740 (denominator) = 0.54
As a result, you get 0.54 as your answer when you convert 400/740 to a decimal.
