## convert fractions to decimals and decimal to fraction

I know that if I enter =3/4 in a cell it will give me .75 but is there is formula to convert fractions into decimals or is this the best way to do it? I was also wondering if there is some way to convert the decimal amount to a fraction

for measurement conversions I know that

=B3*25.4 will convert a decimal to mm and so will the formula =CONVERT(E4,"in","mm")

and to convert mm to a decimal a few formula that work are

=CONVERT(H3,"mm","in")

=MROUND(H4/25.4, 1/8)

=INT(H6/25.39918*8)/8

But is there a way to convert a fraction to the decimal and is there a way to convert mm to a fraction instead of the decimal equivalent of the fraction?

or maybe a formula to convert mm to inches but instead of the result being in decimal format it would be in fraction format?

### Convert fractions to decimals

I keep my racing odds in fractions. I like to change them to decimals.

If the first digit is L then the decimal value should always be -1.00.

eg L100\30 should be -1.00 in A3.

However, if the first digit is W, than I like the decimal value to be in cell A3

to two decimal places.

For Example.

W10\3 should be 3.33 in A3

W3\1 should be 3.00.in A3

W10\11 should be 0.91

W11\4 should be 2.75
