A fraction means division.
Divide 1 by 2.
Code:
1 -:- 2 = 0.5
-0
---
1 0
-1 0
-----
0

3. ## fractions 2 decimals

1/2 =1 dvide by 2 =0.5

2 into 1 =0 put in the dec point add as many 0 as you need to
2 into 10 = .5
to change back underline 0.5 . remove the 0 put number0 under the 5.
put number 1 under the point. remove the des point=5/10 cancel down=
1/2
