Decimal to Fraction

Place Value You need to remember the place value of each digit after the decimal point 3.142 means 4 in the hundredths 2 in the thousandths 1 in the tenths 3 in the units Units Tenths Hundredths Thousandths 3 1 4 2

Decimal to Fraction Determine the place value of the right hand digit
Remove the decimal point and divide by this number 1.6 The 6 is in the tenths column so remove the point and divide by 10 8 1.6 = 5

0.625 The 5 is in the thousandths column so remove the point and divide by 1000 25 5 0.625 = 8 40

Just replace the whole number
3.45 Ignore the 3 as this is already a whole number and only deal with the digits after the decimal point. The 5 is in the hundredths column so remove the point and divide by 100 9 0.45 = 20 So 3.45 = Just replace the whole number

Now a few to try Convert to fractions 0.55 0.125 55/100 = 11/20 2.4
5.15 55/100 = 11/20 125/1000 = 1/8 24/10= 22/5 515/100 = 53/20

Decimal to Fraction Determine the place value of the right hand digit Remove the decimal point and divide by this number 1.6 The 6 is in the tenths column so remove the point and divide by 10 8 1.6 = 5
