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 59 by the denominator 6:
59 (numerator) ÷ 6 (denominator) = 9.83
As a result, you get 9.83 as your answer when you convert 9 5/6 (or 59/6) to a decimal.
