### How to convert fractions to decimals using long division?

When converting fractions to decimals, we need to divide the numerator by the denominator. However, depending on the denominator, it may be possible to find the decimal using some shortcuts (see above links). If the shortcuts are not suitable or not preferred then we can use long division to convert a fraction to a decimal.

You can follow these steps, to convert fractions to decimals using long division:

1. Perform long division by dividing the numerator (dividend) by the denominator (divisor).
2. Continue the division process until either the division terminates (remainder becomes zero) or you obtain the desired level of decimal accuracy by rounding.
3. If the division does not terminate and there is a remainder, continue the long division process until you observe a repeating pattern. Place a bar (or dots) over the repeating digits to indicate the repeating decimal.
