Convert the following decimals to fractions. Do not reduce to the lowest terms.

.9999

Relevance

the decimals behind the comma should always be divided by a multiple of 10 (10, 100, 1000, 10000 etc.). 9999 has four digits. Add one more (always add one more), so it is five now. A multiple of 10 having five digits is 10000. So divide 9999 by 10000 and you have got the answer.

0.25= 1/4.

0.50= 1/2 or 2/4 (1/2 is the simplified version, which a lot of people use. It's better).

0.75= 3/4.

0.33= 1/3.

1 = 1/1 (Any whole number is used for both the denominator (bottom) and numerator (top).

0.20= 1/5, since 20+20= 40+ 20= 60 +20 = 80 + 20 = 100. Like this: 20 +20 + 20 +20 + 20= 100. You can also use 20 x 5.

It's mainly common sense.

• 0.534 = 534/1000 = 267/500 explanation: As we flow from the decimal ingredient to the ideal the names of the places are reported as first place : tenths 2d place : hundredths third place : thousandths etc. So 0.534 is thirty 4 thousandths and then cut back the fraction i'm hoping you get the belief. purely write your self down some decimals with a minimum of three decimal places and prepare the technique. to lessen the fraction to the backside denominator you purely ought to discover out what's the optimal quantity the two the numerator and denominator are divisible with the help of.
