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 497 by the denominator 785:
497 (numerator) ÷ 785 (denominator) = 0.63
As a result, you get 0.63 as your answer when you convert 497/785 to a decimal.
