How to convert a decimal to a fraction?

Check that the decimal is less than 1. If the decimal is greater than 1 then use the convert to a mixed number method.

  1. Write the decimal value as the numerator of the fraction: For example, 0.75 is 75 hundredths and so the numerator is 75.
  2. Determine the denominator based on the number of decimal places: Since 0.75 has two decimal places, the denominator will be 10 raised to the power of the number of decimal places. In this case, it’s 102 = 100.
  3. Simplify the fraction if possible: In this case, 75/100 can be simplified by dividing both the numerator and denominator by their greatest common divisor, which is 25. After simplifying, the fraction becomes 3/4.

So, 0.75 as a fraction is 3/4.
