Steps to Converting Decimals to Fractions

  • Step 1) Count the number of decimal places the decimal has.
  • Step 2) Put a 1 and the number of zeros that there are decimal places for the denominator of the fraction. If you have 2 decimal places, the denominator would be 100. If you have 4 decimal places, the denominator would be 10000.
