Evaluating Algebraic Expressions 2-1Rational Numbers A rational number is any number that can be written as a fraction, where n and d are integers and d  0. n d Any fraction can be written as a decimal by dividing the numerator by the denominator. If the division ends or terminates, because the remainder is zero, then the decimal is a terminating decimal.

Evaluating Algebraic Expressions 2-1Rational Numbers If the division leads to a repeating block of one or more digits (where all digits are not zeros) after the decimal point, then the decimal is a repeating decimal. A repeating decimal can be written with a bar over the digits that repeat. So 0.13333… = 0.13 (bar notation)

Evaluating Algebraic Expressions 2-1Rational Numbers To write a terminating decimal as a fraction, identify the place value of the digit farthest to the right. Then write all of the digits after the decimal point as the numerator with the place value as the denominator.

Evaluating Algebraic Expressions 2-1Rational Numbers 5.37 A. 5.37 7 is in the hundredths place, so write hundredths as the denominator. 37 100 = 5= 5 Additional Example 2: Writing Terminating Decimals as Fractions Write each decimal as a fraction in simplest form. 0.622 B. 0.622 2 is in the thousandths place, so write thousandths as the denominator. 622 1000 = = 311 500 Simplify by dividing by the greatest common divisor.

Evaluating Algebraic Expressions 2-1Rational Numbers A fraction is in reduced, or simplest, form when the numerator and the denominator have no common divisor other than 1. Remember!

Evaluating Algebraic Expressions 2-1Rational Numbers 8.75 A. 8.75 5 is in the hundredths place, so write hundredths as the denominator. 75 100 = 8= 8 = 8= 8 3434 Simplify by dividing by the greatest common divisor. Write each decimal as a fraction in simplest form. Partner Share! Example 2 0.2625 B. 0.2625 5 is in the ten-thousandths place. 2625 10,000 = = 21 80 Simplify by dividing by the greatest common divisor.

Evaluating Algebraic Expressions 2-1Rational Numbers x = 0.44444…Let x represent the number. Additional Example 3: Writing Repeating Decimals as Fractions Write 0.4 as a fraction in simplest form. 10x = 10(0.44444…) Multiply both sides by 10 because 1 digit repeats. Subtract x from both sides to eliminate the repeating part. Since x = 0.44444…, use 0.44444… for x on the right side of the equation. _ 10x = 4.444444… x = 0.44444… 9x = 4 9x = 4 9 9 Since x is multiplied by 9, divide both sides by 9. x = 4949

Evaluating Algebraic Expressions 2-1Rational Numbers x = 0.363636…Let x represent the number. Partner Share! Example 3 Write 0.36 as a fraction in simplest form. 100x = 100(0.363636…) Multiply both sides by 100 because 2 digits repeat. Subtract x from both sides to eliminate the repeating part. Since x = 0.363636…, use 0.363636… for x on the right side of the equation. __ 100x = 36.363636… x = 0.363636… 99x = 36 99x = 36 99 99 Since x is multiplied by 99, divide both sides by 99. x = = 36 99 4 11 Write in simplest form.
