    Fraction not turning into decimal

    I am copying and pasting race results into a excel spreadsheet and having a problem with prices. For the main part it is fine because I can format the columns so that 9/4 will turn into 2.25 but when it is 9/4F, I am struggling to turn the 9/4 into 2.25 having removed the F using =LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-1). If I format the cell with this formula in to a number format then it still shows 9/4 not 2.25.

    There's probably a more efficient way but at this time of night...

    You can try:

    =--("0 "&LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-1))

    Or full formula:

    =IFERROR(--("0 "&A1),--("0 "&LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-1)))

    Another way:

    A
    B
    C
    1
    9/4F
    2.25
    B1: =--("0 " & LEFT(A1, LEN(A1) - 1))
    Entia non sunt multiplicanda sine necessitate
