Changing a Decimal to a Fraction

In order to change a decimal into a fraction, start by considering the place value of the decimal. If it is in the hundredths, the number can be written over 100. For example, .424 can be written as a fraction. Since it’s furthest place value is the thousandths place, it can be rewritten as 424/1,000. Once you have that number, you will need to simplify. Divide the top and bottom by 8, and you are left with 53/125.
