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 701 by the denominator 847:
701 (numerator) ÷ 847 (denominator) = 0.83
As a result, you get 0.83 as your answer when you convert 701/847 to a decimal.
