# What is 1.5 as a fraction?

A fraction can be a portion or section of any quantity out of a whole.

## Answer: 1.5 as a fraction is 3/2

Let's write 1.5 as a fraction.

## Explanation:

Given decimal is 1.5

It can be written as 1.5/1

Now to get rid of the decimal, move the decimal towards right and add as many zeroes to the denominator as many places the decimal moved.

1.5/1 = 15/10 {as decimal moved one place towards right}

15/10 = (3 × 5)/(2 × 5) = 3/2 {cancel out the common factors from numerator and denominator}
