Decimal to Fraction Chart
A decimal to fraction chart is used to perform quick calculations. It gives us the accurate value of decimal representation into p/q form and viceversa. Fractions, decimals, and percents are numerical values that can be converted into each other using conversion methods. In this article, we will be learning about the decimal to fraction chart and the procedure to convert decimals to the corresponding fractions using solved examples.

Decimal to Fraction Chart
Anchor charts are used to make fractions and decimal conversion easier for students. Here is a chart of some commonlyused fractions and their decimal equivalents. The fractions in the third column have been obtained after simplifying the fractions in the second column.
Decimal  Fraction Equivalent  Simplest form 

0.1  1/10  1/10 
0.2  2/10  1/5 
0.3  3/10  3/10 
0.4  4/10  2/5 
0.5  5/10  1/2 
0.6  6/10  6/10 
0.75  75/100  3/4 
0.125  125/1000  1/8 
0.625  625/1000  5/8 
1.25 
125/100 = \(1\dfrac{25}{100}\) 
\(1\dfrac{3}{4}\) = 7/4 
Conversion of Decimal into Fraction
These are the 3 simple steps to convert any decimal into a fraction:
 Step 1: Place the decimal over 1 in the fraction format with the decimal in the numerator and 1 in the denominator like this: Decimal/1.
 Step 2: Multiply both the denominator and the numerator by 10 for every digit after the decimal point. (For instance, if there are two digits after the decimal point, then multiply by 100, if there are three then multiply by 1000, etc.)
 Step 3: Then, simplify, or reduce the fraction. The answer is expressed as a fraction in its lowest form.
Let us use this process to convert the decimal 0.5 into a fraction.
 Step 1: Place the decimal over 1 in the fraction format with the decimal in the numerator and 1 in the denominator like this: 0.5/1
 Step 2: Multiply both the denominator and the numerator by 10 for every digit after the decimal point. Here, there is only one digit after the decimal point, so we multiply by 10. (0.5 × 10)/(1 × 10)
 Step 3: Then, simplify, or reduce the given fraction. 5/10 can be simplified as 1/2.
Thus, 0.5 = 5/10 = 1/2
Uses of Decimal to Fraction Chart
We can use the decimal to fraction chart as a quick reference to the most needed conversions between decimals to fractions and vice versa. These charts come in handy, especially while working on data interpretation that is while solving bar charts and pie charts.
Important Notes on Decimal to Fractions Chart
Here is a list of a few points that should be remembered while studying the decimal to fraction chart.
 The fractions, decimals, and percents that are found in pie charts and bar charts are the numerical versions of those slices and bars
 While working on data interpretation, in order to interpret bar charts and pie charts, fraction to decimal charts can be used.

Converting Decimal to Fractions Examples

Example 1. With the help of decimal to fractions chart convert the decimal value 0.8 into a fraction.
Solution:
Let us follow these 3 simple steps to convert this decimal into a fraction.
Step 1: Place the decimal over 1 in the fraction format with the decimal in the numerator and 1 in the denominator like this: 0.8/1
Step 2: Multiply both the denominator and the numerator by 10 for every digit after the decimal point. Here, there is only one digit after the decimal point, so we multiply by 10. (0.8 × 10)/(1 × 10)
Step 3: Then, simplify, or reduce the given fraction. 8/10 can be simplified as 4/5.
Thus, 0.8 = 8/10 = 4/5.

Example 2. Convert the decimal 0.75 into a fraction. (Hint: use decimal to fraction chart given above)
Solution:
Let us follow these 3 simple steps to convert this decimal into a fraction.
Step 1: Place the decimal over 1 in the fraction format with the decimal in the numerator and 1 in the denominator like this: 0.75/1
Step 2: Multiply both the denominator and the numerator by 10 for every digit after the decimal point. Here, there is only one digit after the decimal point, so we multiply by 10. (0.75 × 100)/(1 × 100)
Step 3: Then, simplify, or reduce the given fraction. 75/100 can be simplified as 3/4.
Thus, 0.75 = 75/100 = 3/4.
