# What Is 62/75 as a Decimal + Solution With Free Steps

The fraction 62/75 as a decimal is equal to 0.826.

A repeating decimal is a decimal number that contains a digit or group of digits that repeat endlessly. The number of digits that repeat is called the period of the repeating decimal.

Here, we are more interested in the division types that result 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, let’s go through the Solution of fraction 62/75.

## 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 done as follows:

Dividend = 62

Divisor = 75

Now, we introduce the most important quantity in our division process: 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 = 62 $\div$ 75

This is when we go through the Long Division solution to our problem. The following figure shows the solution for fraction 62/75.

## 62/75 Long Division Method

We start solving a problem using the Long Division Method by first taking apart the division’s components and comparing them. As we have 62 and 75, we can see how 62 is Smaller than 75, and to solve this division, we require that 62 be Bigger than 75.

This is done by multiplying the dividend by 10 and checking whether it is bigger than the divisor or not. If so, we calculate the Multiple of the divisor 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 62, which after getting multiplied by 10 becomes 620.

We take this 620 and divide it by 75; this can be done as follows:

620 $\div$ 75 $\approx$ 8

Where:

75 x 8 = 600

This will lead to the generation of a Remainder equal to 620 – 600 = 20. Now this means we have to repeat the process by Converting the 20 into 200 and solving for that:

200 $\div$ 75 $\approx$ 2

Where:

75 x 2 = 150

This, therefore, produces another Remainder which is equal to 200 – 150 = 50. Now this means we have to repeat the process by Converting the 50 into 500 and solving for that:

500 $\div$ 75 $\approx$ 6

Where:

75 x 6 = 450

Finally, we have a Quotient generated after combining the three pieces of it as 0.826, with a Remainder equal to 50.
