I was wondering How do I write a fraction or mixed number for a number such as 900.002 and or numbers such as 289.078 How do I figure out what the fraction form of theese types of numbers are?????

900.002 is read as 900 and 2 thousandths. In fraction form it would be 9 2/1000
How would you read 289.078?
How do you write it as a fraction?

I think I read this as 289 and 78 thousandths? So it would be wrote as 289 78/1000 ??

289 78/1000 = 289 39/500 simplified
