# What Is 4/13 as a Decimal + Solution With Free Steps

**The fraction 4/13 as a decimal is equal to 0.307.**

The process of division is one of the four basic mathematical operations. It is used to describe parts of a whole in real life. In mathematics, division can be represented in the form of fractions like p/q, where p represents the numerator and q the denominator. When we **evaluate** a fraction, we end up with a **decimal** value.

Here, we are interested more in the types of division that results in a **Decimal** value, as this can be expressed as a **Fraction**. We see fractions as a way of showing two numbers having the operation of **Division** between them that result in a value that lies between two **Integers**.

Now, we introduce the method used to solve said fraction to decimal conversion, called **Long Division **which we will discuss in detail moving forward. So, letâ€™s go through the **Solution** of fraction **4/13**.

## Solution

First, we convert the fraction components i.e., the numerator and the denominator, and transform them into the division constituents i.e., the **Dividend** and the **Divisor** respectively.

* This can be seen done as follows:*

**Dividend = 4**

**Divisor = 13**

Now, we introduce the most important quantity in our process of division, this is the **Quotient**. The value represents the **Solution** to our division, and can be expressed as having the following relationship with the **Division** constituents:

**Quotient = Dividend $\div$ Divisor = 4 $\div$ 13**

This is when we go through the **Long Division** solution to our problem.

## 4/13 Long Division Method

We start solving a problem using the **Long Division Method** by first taking apart the divisionâ€™s components and comparing them. As we have **4**, and **13** we can see how **4**Â is **Smaller** than **13**, and to solve this division we require that 4 be **Bigger** than 13.

This is done by **multiplying** the dividend by **10** and checking whether it is bigger than the divisor or not. And if it is then we calculate the **Multiple** of the divisor which is closest to the dividend and subtract it from the **Dividend**. This produces the **Remainder** which we then use as the dividend later.

Now, we begin solving for our dividend **4**, which after getting multiplied by **10** becomes **40**.

*We take this 40 and divide it by 13, this can be seen done as follows:*

**Â 40 $\div$ 13 $\approx$ 3**

Where:

**13 x 3 = 39**

We add **3 **to our quotient. This will lead to the generation of a **Remainder** equal to **40 â€“ 39 = 1**, now this means we have to repeat the process by **Converting** the **1** into **100** (since 10 is smaller than 13) and solving for that.

Note that 1 needs to be multiplied **twice** by 10 to become 100, so we add **0** to our quotient because of this. Now:

**100 $\div$ 13 $\approx$ 7Â **

Where:

**13 x 7 = 91**

This, therefore, produces another remainder which is equal to **100 â€“ 91 = 9**. We now have up to 3 decimal places, so we stop here with a **Quotient** equal to **0.307** and a final **Remainder** equal to **9**.
