Writing Decimals as Fractions
Lesson 4-7

To write a finite decimal as a fraction, identify the place value of the farthest digit to the right. Then write all of the digits after the decimal points as the numerator with the place value as the denominator.

Simplify by dividing by the common factor 2. 4 5
Additional Example 2A: Writing Decimals as Fractions Write the decimal as a fraction in simplest form. A. 0.8 8 10 = 0.8 8 is in the tenths place. Simplify by dividing by the common factor 2. = 4 5
