5/8 = 0.625 Answer.

This might seem as it is hard, but trust me it is not:

This all you have to do:

Divide 5 by 8

5 / 8 = .625 and there you have it.

5/8 is .625 as a decimal

To change 5 / 8 into a fraction you can simply just divide 5 with eight . By dividing 5 with 8 , you would get **0 . 625 which is your answer .**

Another way to change fractions into decimals is by changing the denominator to 100 , but since 8 does not go into 100 evenly , this would not work . An example that could work , would be

30 / 50 , to change this into a decimal you would multiply both the numerator and denominator by 2 .

By multiplying, you should get

60 / 100 which can be changed to 60 %

0.625
