Homework Help: math. HOW DO I CONVERT A DECIMAL TO A FRACTION

Posted by sarah on Sunday, February 25, 2007 at 2:23am.

how do i convert a decimal to fraction in SIMPLEST FORM?

a) -2.756

??

Write out the 0.756 as 756/1000, then reduce it to lower terms if you can. Since both numerator and denominator are evenly divisible by 4, 756/1000 can be reduced to 189/250.

The mixed number becomes
-2 189/250 or -689/250

I agree with drwls.

Write the decimal above the fraction line and put a 1 underneath with however many 0s there are as numbers. Then simplify. Plus i agree with drwls. :)

By doing it.

.5=
5/10
1/2

.75=
75/100
3/4
