Steps For Converting Decimals to Fractions

1. Write the fraction of the decimal how it is read.
2. Simplify the fraction to lowest terms using the GCF.

Example #1:

Convert 0.55 to a fraction
Write it!
55/100

Divide the numerator and denominator by the greatest common factor.
GCF = 5
55 divided by 5 = 11
100 divided by 5 = 20

Example #2:

Convert 0.24 to a fraction
Write it:
24/100

Divide by the gcf.
The gcf is 4.
24 divided by 4 = 6
100 divided by 4 = 25

Try these:

1) 0.3

2) 0.45

3) 1.75
answer: 1 75/100 = 1 3/4

4) 0.125
Steps For Converting Fractions to Decimals:

* 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

4/5 = 8/10  and multiply the numerator and denominator by 2.
The denominator is now tenths.

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

Try these:
1) 7/8

2) 13/50
