Answer: 0.325 as a fraction is expressed as 13/40
Here, we will express 0.325 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, 0.325 has three numbers after the decimal, so, we place 1000 in the denominator and remove the decimal point.
