# Write each decimal as a fraction or mixed number a) 0.2 b) 0.6 c) 0.35

A Fraction can be a portion or section of any quantity out of a whole, where, the whole can be any number, a specific value, or a thing. All fractions consist of a numerator and a denominator.

A decimal number can be defined as a number whose whole number part and the fractional part are separated by a decimal point.

## Answer: a) 0.2 as a fraction can be written as 1/5 b) 0.6 as a fraction can be written as 3/5 c) 0.35 can be written as 7/20

Let us proceed step by step

**Explanation:**

To express 0.2 as in a fraction, we need to write the given decimal number into the x/y form, where x and y are the positive integers.

Hence, we divide the number by 1 i.e, 0.2 / 1

Now, we have to multiply and divide by 10.

Hence, 0.2/1 × 10/10 = 2/10

This fraction, 2/10 can be further be simplified to 1/5.

So, 0.2 as a fraction is equal to 1/5

Similarly, we can write 0.6 as 6/10 = 3/5

and 0.35 as 35/100 = 7/20.

It cannot be written in mixed form as all the obtained fractions are proper fractions.
