One method to convert 53/7 to a decimal is by using the division method. Before we move ahead to the method, here is a quick recap on fractions: A fraction is a number representation that is broken down into two parts - the number on top is called the numerator, and the number on the bottom is called the denominator. To get a decimal using the division method, simply divide the numerator 53 by the denominator 7:
53 (numerator) ÷ 7 (denominator) = 7.57
And there you go! We got 7.57 as the answer when you convert 7 4/7 (or 53/7) to a decimal.
