2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions
Lesson 2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions California Standard: Number Sense 1.5 Know that every rational number is either a terminating or a repeating decimal and be able to convert terminating decimals into reduced fractions. What it means for you: You’ll see how to change terminating decimals into fractions that have the same value. Key Words: fraction decimal terminating

2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions
Lesson 2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions This Lesson is a bit like the opposite of the last Lesson — you’ll be taking decimals and finding their equivalent fractions. 0.5 1 2 0.125 1 8 This is how you can show that they’re definitely rational numbers.

2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions
Lesson 2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions Decimals Can Be Turned into Fractions If you read decimals using the place-value system, then it’s more straightforward to convert them into fractions. 0.15 is said “fifteen-hundredths,” so it turns into the fraction 15 100

2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions
Lesson 2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions You need to remember the value of each position after the decimal point: decimal point 0.1234 tenths ten-thousandths hundredths thousandths

2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions
Lesson 2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions Then when you are reading a decimal number, look at the position of the last digit. 0.1 is one-tenth, which is the fraction . 1 10 0.01 is one-hundredth, which is the fraction 1 100

2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions
Lesson 2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions Some Fractions Can Be Made Simpler When you convert decimals to fractions this way, you’ll often get fractions that aren’t in their simplest form. could be written more simply as 5 10 1 2 75 100 3 4 If an answer is a fraction, you should usually give it in its simplest form.

2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions
Lesson 2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions This is how to reduce a fraction to its simplest form: Find the biggest number that will divide into both the numerator and the denominator without leaving any remainder. This number is called the greatest common factor, or GCF. Then divide both the numerator and the denominator by the GCF. If the greatest common factor is 1 then the fraction is already in its simplest form — you can’t simplify it any more.

2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions
Lesson 2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions Example 3 Convert 0.12 into a fraction. Solution As a fraction it is 12 100 0.12 is twelve hundredths. The factors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12. The biggest of these that also divides into 100 leaving no remainder is 4. So the greatest common factor of 12 and 100 is 4. Divide both the numerator and denominator by 4. 12 ÷ 4 100 ÷ 4 3 25 = 0.12 as a fraction in its simplest form is 3 25 Solution follows…

2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions
Lesson 2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions Example 4 Convert 0.7 into a fraction. Solution As a fraction it is . 7 10 0.7 is seven tenths. The greatest common factor of 7 and 10 is 1, so this fraction is already in its simplest form. Solution follows…

Lesson 2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions Guided Practice 21. Priscilla measures a paper clip. She decides that it is six-eighths of an inch long. Otis measures the same paper clip with a different ruler and says it is twelve-sixteenths of an inch long. How can their different answers be explained? is a simpler form of Both answers are the same. 6 8 12 16 Solution follows…

2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions
Lesson 2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions Decimals Greater Than 1 Become Improper Fractions When you convert a decimal number greater than 1 into a fraction it’s probably easier to change it into a mixed number first. Then you can change the mixed number into an improper fraction. 1 2 3 2 1.5

2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions
Lesson 2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions Example 5 Convert 13.7 into a fraction. Solution 7 10 Convert 0.7 first — this becomes . A mixed number. Add on the 13. The result can be written as 7 10 Now turn into an improper fraction. 7 10 13 whole units are equivalent to 13 1 10 • = 130 7 10 13 1 10 • = = 7 130 137 So add to this: Solution follows…

2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions Round Up
Lesson 2.1.2 Converting Terminating Decimals to Fractions Round Up The important thing when converting a decimal to a fraction is to think about the place value of the last digit. Then read the decimal and turn it into a fraction. If the decimal is greater than 1, ignore the whole number until you get the decimal part figured out. Take your time, do each step carefully, and you should be OK.
