# How do you convert 0.02 to a fraction?

A fraction can be defined as a numerical quantity that is not a whole number example 2/3, 5/6.

## Answer: 0.02 can be written in fraction form as 1/50.

Let us proceed step by step

**Explanation:**

**Step 1:** We need to multiply the numerator and denominator by 100 since there are 2 digits after the decimal.

0.02 = (0.02 × 100) / 100

= 2 / 100 [ since 0.02 × 100 = 2 ]

**Step 2:** Reduce the obtained fraction to the lowest term

Since 2 is the common factor of 2 and 100 so we divide both the numerator and denominator by 2.

2/100 = (2 ÷ 2) / (100 ÷ 2) = 1/50

### Hence, 0.02 can be written in fraction form as 1/50.
