Equal to Terminating Decimal

a decimal value that ends or terminates

example: 0.5, 3.44, 0.78 Repeating Decimal

a decimal value that repeats and continues on to infinity

example:

0.33 = 0.333333 continues on

0.4747=0.47474747 continues on Equivalent Fractions

Value of the fractions are the same Numerator

Top number in a fraction Denominator

Bottom number in a fraction Common Denominator

Denominators that are the same number Uncommon Denominator

Denominators that are not the same number Simplify Change fraction to its lowest terms Greatest Common Factor

The largest number that will divide into 2 or more numbers evenly Least Common Multiple

The smallest number that 2 or more numbers can be divided into evenly Convert

To change Improper Fraction

a fraction where the numerator is greater than the denominator Proper Fraction

a fraction where the numerator is less than the denominator Mixed Number

contains an integer, generally a whole number and a fractional part The Big One

The Big One: a fraction = to one whole, where the numerator and denominator are the same. Ex: 4/4, 5/5, 8/8.

1. Write the fraction of the decimal how it is read.

2. Simplify the fraction to lowest terms using the GCF.

Convert 0.55 to a fraction

0.55 is read 55 hundredths

Write it!

Divide the numerator and denominator by the greatest common factor.

GCF = 5

55 divided by 5 = 11

100 divided by 5 = 20

Convert 0.24 to a fraction

0.24 is read 24 hundredths

Write it:

Divide by the gcf.

The gcf is 4.

24 divided by 4 = 6

100 divided by 4 = 25

answer: 125/1000 = 1/8

* Divide the numerator of the fraction by the denominator.

* If it doesnâ€™t divide evenly, add a decimal point and a zero to

*the number inside the division bracket and a decimal point

*on top of the division bracket.

*Now divide.

*Keep dividing until you get zero as a remainder

or until the answer repeats several times.

OR

You can also change a fraction into its decimal equivalent by rewriting it as a fraction with a denominator of 10, 100, or 1,000 and so on.

Then write the decimal like the fraction is read.

*Convert 4/5 to a decimal.

*Divide numerator by denominator

*4 divided by 5

(notice a decimal point and a zero placeholder were added).

OR

The denominator is now tenths.

The decimal is 0.8 (**8 tenths**) 4/5 =
**8/10**
