Decimal to Fraction Conversion
To know about decimal to fraction conversion, we first need to know their definitions individually.
A fraction is basically defined as the ratio of two numbers p and q such that p/q where q is not equal to zero. Here p is called numerator and q is called denominator value.
A decimal number is basically defined as a number whose whole number part and the decimal part is separated by the decimal point.
Coming to the conversion, to convert the decimal into a fraction, we need to follow theses steps
- Write the decimal in a fraction form(0.25 can be written as 25/100)
- Then simplify the fraction obtained (Example 25/100 to 1/4)
- In some cases, we have recurring decimals, here is the procedure for the conversion of such decimals
