**math. HOW DO I CONVERT A DECIMAL TO A FRACTION**

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/...
