## How to Convert Decimal to Fraction?

Here you can see simple steps for converting decimal numbers to fraction.

Step 1:

Make a fraction with the decimal number as the numerator (top number) and a 1 as the denominator (bottom number).

Step 2:

Remove the decimal places by multiplication. First, count how many places are to the right of the decimal. Next, given that you have x decimal places, multiply numerator and denominator by 10x.

Step 3:

Reduce the fraction. Find the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of the numerator and denominator and divide both numerator and denominator by the GCF.

Step 4:

Simplify the remaining fraction to a mixed number fraction if possible.

### Example: Convert 0.35 to a fraction

Step 1:

Write down 0.35 divided by 1:

0.35
1
Step 2:

Multiply numerator and denominator by 102 = 100 to eliminate 2 decimal places

0.35
1
×
100
100
=
35
100
Step 3:

Find the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of 35 and 100, if it exists, and reduce the fraction by dividing both numerator and denominator by GCF = 5

35/5
100/5
=
7
20
Ans
=
7
20
Note: 35/100 is called a decimal fraction and 7/20 is called a common fraction !

### Example: Convert 0.625 to a fraction

Step 1:

Write down 0.625 divided by 1:

0.625
1
Step 2:

Multiply numerator and denominator by 103 = 1000 to eliminate 3 decimal places

0.625

=
625
1000
Step 3:

Find the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of 625 and 1000, if it exists, and reduce the fraction by dividing both numerator and denominator by GCF = 125

625/125
1000/125
=
5
8
Ans
=
5
8
Note: 625/1000 is called a decimal fraction and 5/8 is called a common fraction !

### Example: Convert 3.5 to a fraction

Put the 3 aside and just work on 0.5

Step 1:

Write down 0.5 divided by 1:

0.5
1
Step 2:

Multiply numerator and denominator by 101 = 10 to eliminate 1 decimal places

0.5
1
×
10
10
=
5
10
Step 3:

Find the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of 5 and 10, if it exists, and reduce the fraction by dividing both numerator and denominator by GCF = 5

5/5
10/5
=
1
2

Bring back the 3 (to make a mixed fraction):

Ans
=
3
