Accepted Solution

A:

To find the decimal form, you have to manually divide 1 by 8. Since 8 is greater than 1, the quotient would then start with 0., then you add a 0 next to 1, to make it 10. This time, divide 10 by 8. The nearest answer would be 1, because 1 *8 = 8. Subtracting this from 10, you get 2. Add another 0 to 2, to make it 20. Do the cycle all over again. The complete solution is as follows:

0.125

---------------------------

8 | 10

- 8

------------------------

20

-16

-------------

40

- 40

-------------

0

Hence, the decimal form of 1/8 is 0.125.
