Answer: 0.125 as a fraction is written as 1/8.
Here, we will write 0.125 as a fraction.
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, 0.125 has three numbers after the decimal, so, we place 1000 in the denominator and remove the decimal point.
After reducing this fraction we get,
⇒ (125 ÷ 125) / (1000 ÷ 125) = 1/8
Therefore, 0.125 as a fraction form is 1/8.
