# 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.

**Explanation:**

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

= 52/100

reducing the fraction we get 13/25
