## Answer: As a decimal 3/25 = 0.12

Both decimals and fractions are just two ways to represent the same number.

**Explanation:**

Let's convert 3/25 as a decimal by follow the steps below:

Step 1: Find a number such that we can multiply the denominator of the fraction to make it 10 or 100 or 1000 or any powers of 10.

Step 2: Multiply both numerator and denominator by that number to convert it into an equivalent fraction.

Step 3. Then write down just the numerator, putting the decimal point in the correct place i.e., one space from the right-hand side for every zero in the denominator

Now, 3/25 = (3/25) × (4 / 4) = 12/100 = 0.12
