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 72 by the denominator 96:
72 (numerator) ÷ 96 (denominator) = 0.75
As a result, you get 0.75 as your answer when you convert 72/96 to a decimal.
