Decimals to Fractions

Published on

Converting between decimals and fractions can be a bit tricky, but with some practice, you'll be able to do it easily.

Let's start with converting from decimals to fractions. To convert a decimal to a fraction, you need to find a fraction with the same value as the decimal.

Here's how you can do it:

Write the decimal as a fraction over 1. For example, if the decimal is 0.75, write it as 0.75/1. Move the decimal point two places to the right. For example, 0.75 becomes 75/100. Simplify the fraction if possible. For example, 75/100 can be simplified to 3/4. Now, let's look at converting from fractions to decimals. To convert a fraction to a decimal, you need to divide the numerator by the denominator.

Here's how you can do it:

Divide the numerator by the denominator. For example, if the fraction is 3/4, divide 3 by 4. Write the answer as a decimal. For example, 3 divided by 4 is equal to 0.75. Remember, with a little practice, converting between decimals and fractions will become easier!
