# How to Write a Decimal as a Fraction?

Decimals and fractions are different notations of representing numbers.

## Answer: A decimal can be written as a fraction by counting the number of digits to the right of the decimal and then multiplying and dividing by the multiple of 10 as accordingly then reducing the fraction to its lowest form.

Let's consider an example.

**Explanation:**

Let's convert decimal to fraction using simple steps.

- 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.

0.52 /1 ✕ 100/100 = 52/100

Reducing the fraction we get 13/25

### Hence, the decimal can be converted to a fraction by counting the number of digits to the right of the decimal and then multiplying and dividing by the multiple of 10 as accordingly then reducing the fraction to its lowest form.
