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 7987 by the denominator 81:
7987 (numerator) ÷ 81 (denominator) = 98.6
As a result, you get 98.6 as your answer when you convert 7987/81 to a decimal.
