math. HOW DO I CONVERT A DECIMAL TO A FRACTION
posted by sarah on .
how do i convert a decimal to fraction in SIMPLEST FORM?
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.
