# What is 1.25 as a Fraction?

Decimals are a set of numbers written together with a dot in between them that is called a *decimal* point. Fraction is a numerical value that represents a part of a whole.

## Answer: 1.25 as a fraction is expressed as 5/4

In order to express 1.25 as a fraction, we will first try to remove the decimal.

**Explanation**

As 1.25 has 2 numbers after the decimal point, we will divide it by 100 in order to remove the decimal.

Hence, we get: 1.25 = 125/100

Now, dividing both sides by a common factor of 25, we will get:

125/100 = 5/4
