Fractions and Decimals

# Decimals and Fractions

A decimal number system is used to express the whole number and fraction together. Here, we will separate the whole number from the fraction by inserting a “.”, which is called a decimal point. And a fraction represents a value in the form of a/b. There is a close relationship between decimals and fractions. To convert any decimal number to a fraction, we ignore the decimal point and divide the number by the place value of the last digit in the fractional part of the number. Then we simplify the fraction so obtained. The decimals and fractions can be conveniently interchanged to each other.

The decimals and fractions vary in the format in which they are written. A decimal of 3.24 is written in the form of a fraction of 324/100. In this mini-lesson, we will explore the relationship between decimals and fractions, and understand how to convert a decimal to a fraction.
