show me how to convert a decimal into a fraction in simplest form

    drop the decimal place and use that resulting number as your numerator.
    The denominator is a power of 10, were the exponent is the number of decimal places you had in your original number.
    i.e. a 1 followed by as many zeros as you had decimal places

    e.g. 0.123 = 123/1000

    reduce the fraction to its lowest terms if possible

    N = .123
    1000N = 123
    N = 123/1000
