To convert a decimal to a fraction, follow these steps:

**Identify the Decimal Number:**Let’s say you have a decimal number like 0.75 that you want to convert to a fraction.**Count Decimal Places:**Count the number of decimal places in the decimal number. In the case of 0.75, there are two decimal places.**Create a Fraction:**The decimal number can be thought of as a fraction where the numerator is the decimal number without the decimal point and the denominator is 1 followed by the same number of zeros as there are decimal places.

For 0.75

Numerator = 75

Denominator = 100 (since there are two decimal places)

Simplify the Fraction: If possible, simplify the fraction by finding the greatest common divisor (GCD) of the numerator and denominator, and then dividing both by the GCD. In this case, 75 and 100 have a GCD of 25.

Simplified Numerator = 75 ÷ 25 = 3

Simplified Denominator = 100 ÷ 25 = 4

So, the decimal 0.75 can be converted to the fraction 3/4.

In mathematical notation, the process can be summarized as:

Decimal Number: 0.75

Decimal Places: 2

Numerator = 75

Denominator = 100

Simplified:

Numerator = 3

Denominator = 4

Fraction: 3/4

## Solved Example

**Example 1 – Convert 0.32 to fraction**

**Ans.** 0.32 = 32/100

Find the greatest common divisor (gcd) of the numerator and the denominator:

gcd(32,100) = 4

Reduce the fraction by dividing the numerator and the denominator with the gcd:

0.32 = (32/4) / (100/4) = 8/25

**Example 2 – Convert 2.56 to fraction**

**Ans.** 2.56 = 2+56/100

Find the greatest common divisor (gcd) of the numerator and the denominator:

gcd(56,100) = 4

Reduce the fraction by dividing the numerator and the denominator with the gcd:

2+56/100 = 2 + (56/4) / (100/4) = 2+14/25

**Example 3 – Convert 0.124 to fraction**

**Ans.** 0.124 = 124/1000

Find the greatest common divisor (gcd) of the numerator and the denominator:

gcd(124,1000) = 4

Reduce the fraction by dividing the numerator and the denominator with the gcd:

0.124 = (124/4) / (1000/4) = 31/250

## FAQs on decimal to fraction

### How do you convert 1.75 into a fraction?

To convert 1.75 into a fraction, first, recognize that it's a mixed number with a whole part and a decimal part. The whole part is 1, and the decimal part is 0.75. To convert the decimal part to a fraction, we can use the fact that 0.75 is three-fourths (3/4) in fractional form. Therefore, 1.75 can be expressed as the fraction 1 3/4.

### How do you turn 0.75 into a fraction?

To convert 0.75 into a fraction, recognize that the decimal is already in fractional form with the denominator 100 (because there are two decimal places). So, 0.75 can be written as 75/100. To simplify the fraction, you can divide both the numerator and denominator by their greatest common divisor, which is 25. Dividing both by 25 results in 3/4.
