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
Hence, we divide the number by 1 i.e, 0.2 / 1
Now, we will multiply and divide 0.2 / 1 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
0.35 as 35/100 = 7/20.
The fractions obtained cannot be written in mixed form as all the obtained fractions are proper fractions.
