Answer: 0.15 is written as 3/20 in the form of a fraction.
Let's convert 0.15 into a fraction.
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, 0.15 has two numbers after the decimal, so, we place 100 in the denominator and remove the decimal point.
After reducing this fraction we get,
⇒ (15 ÷ 5) / (100 ÷ 5) = 3/20
Hence, 0.15 is written as 3/20 in the form of a fraction.
