i need some to explain how to turn 1.05 into a fraction


Do you know how to add fractions?

1 + 0.05 equals 1.05.

So if you can convert 1 to a fraction and 0.05 to a fraction, you can add the two fractions together. Your answer is 1.05 as a fraction.


Continuing with Leo's previous answer, remember that when you add fractions together, they need to have a common denominator. Here are some more steps toward the answer.

0.05 = 5/100 = 1/20

Add 1 to that, and you get 1 1/20, which is a mixed number. You can also write it as
20/20 + 1/20 = 21/20

which is a pure fraction and is the answer that you seek.


Just say the number aloud to yourself...one and five hundredths. That is the fraction too. 1 5/100 which reduces to 1 1/20.

    It is 1 5/100 because the 5 is in the 100ths place, and there is a 1 in front of the decimal so that is the whole number.

    Zoe Exactly.
