# How do you convert 0.2 into fraction?

A decimal number can be defined as a number whose whole number part and the fractional part is separated by a decimal point. A fraction is represented as a numerical value that can be defined as a part of a whole.

## Answer: 0.2 when converted into a fraction is 1/5.

**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, 0.2 has one number after the decimal, so, we place 10 in the denominator and remove the decimal point.

⇒ 2/10

After reducing this fraction we get

⇒ (2 ÷ 2) / (10 ÷ 2) = 1/5

### Thus, 0.2 when converted into a fraction is 1/5
