How to Write a Decimal as a Fraction?
Decimal and fraction are different notations of representing numbers.
Answer: A decimal can be written as a fraction by following the below steps.
Decimals are very easy to convert to fractions.
- Firstly, write the number divided by 1.
For example, let us consider 0.52, this can be written as 0.5/1 (recall anything divided by 1 is the same number itself)
- Multiply and divide by 10 for each decimal point after the number.
0.52 has 2 digits after the decimal point so let us multiply and divide by 100
i.e 0.52 /1 ✕ 100/100
reducing the fraction we get 13/25
