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 96 by the denominator 118:

96 (numerator) ÷ 118 (denominator) = 0.81

As a result, you get 0.81 as your answer when you convert 96/118 to a decimal.
