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 62 by the denominator 147:
62 (numerator) ÷ 147 (denominator) = 0.42
As a result, you get 0.42 as your answer when you convert 62/147 to a decimal.
