Express 0.75 as a fraction in simplest form.
A fraction is a numerical value that is defined as a part of a whole.
Answer: 0.75 can be expressed as 3/4 in the form of a fraction.
Let us understand this with the help of the following explanation.
To convert a decimal number into a fraction, we write the given number as the numerator and place 1 in the denominator right below the decimal point followed by the number of zeros required accordingly. Then, this fraction can be simplified.
In this case, 0.75 has two numbers after the decimal, so, we place 100 in the denominator and remove the decimal point.
After reducing this fraction we get
⇒ (75 ÷ 25) / (100 ÷ 25) = 3/4
It should be noted that 3/4 and 75/100 are equivalent fractions.
The value of 0.75 as a fraction is 3/4.
