Solution: 60/1 as a decimal is 60
Methods
Method 1 β Explanation using the division method:
One method to convert 60/1 to a decimal is by using the division method. Before we move ahead to the method, here is a quick recap on fractions: A fraction is a number representation that is broken down into two parts - the number on top is called the numerator, and the number on the bottom is called the denominator. To get a decimal using the division method, simply divide the numerator 60 by the denominator 1:
60 (numerator) Γ· 1 (denominator) = 60
And there you go! We got 60 as the answer when you convert 60/1 to a decimal.
Method 2 β Explanation using the factors of 10 method:
In this method, we will convert the denominator into a power of 10 and then our fraction will be easier to calculate. If the denominator is a factor of a power of 10, like 2, 4, 5, 8, 10, 16, 20, 25, 40, 50 and so on, then we can convert it into a power of 10.
In order to make 1 a power of 10, we need to multiply by 10 (1 * 10 = 10. Since we multiplied the denominator by {m}, we also need to multiply the numerator by {m} too:

And finally, you get 60 as your answer when you convert 60/1 to a decimal.
