How to convert decimals into fractions?

Converting a decimal into a fraction is a fairly straightforward process.

It involves looking at the number of decimal places the decimal has and putting the decimal part as the numerator and the denominator as a '1' followed the the same number of zeros as there are decimal places.

This converts the decimal into a decimal fraction (a fraction where the denominator is a power of 10.

After that, you will probably need to simplify the fraction.

Example 1) Convert 0.37 into a fraction.

This decimal has two decimal places.

So the numerator is the decimal number, which is 37.

The denominator is a '1' followed by 2 zeros, which is 100.

This give us \[ 0.37 = {37 \over 100} \]


Example 2) Convert 0.416 into a fraction.

This decimal has 3 decimal places.

So the numerator is the decimal number, which is 416.

The denominator is a '1' followed by 3 zeros, which is 1000.

This give us \[ 0.416 = {416 \over 1000} \]


Example 3) Convert 0.9 into a fraction.

This decimal has 1 decimal places.

So the numerator is the decimal number, which is 9.

The denominator is a '1' followed by 1 zero, which is 10.

This give us \[ 0.9 = {9 \over 10} \]
