math fractions and decimals

How do you can you change a decimal to a fraction when the fraction looks like this 0.43 3/4 or .16 2/3 .How can I change this to a fraction?I tried dividing it by 100 but it doesn't give me the right answer.

These fractions/decimals remind me of what I see on the big gas stations signs, telling the prices of their gasoline. $3.89 9/10 = $3.899
So ...
0.43 3/4 = 0.4375
0.16 2/3 = 0.1666666666666666666666666667
