# How do you change -1/2 into a decimal?

See explanation

This approach is not always effective, though; one way to determine if the decimal is finite for any given fraction is to compute the long division of the numerator and denominator. For instance:

2:3=0.666... 0

20/18

= 20 18

To change -1/2 into a decimal, you divide the numerator (which is -1) by the denominator (which is 2):

-1 ÷ 2 = -0.5

So, -1/2 as a decimal is -0.5.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
