Subject: converting fractions to decimals

We are home schooling here in remote WA and are using the Heinemann Outcomes books. Our Year 9 daughter is unsure of how to convert fractions to decimals when they look like this, -24 18 32 -21 Please could you give us a tip. I know the answer is 75% for the first one but am stuck as how to explain it away. Yours sincerely Ruth Moore
