You need to move the decimal point 3 columns or places to the right meaning you have to multiply by 1 with 3 zeros = 1000.

0.023 = 23/1000 = 230/10,000 = 2.3/100

0.023/1.000

Cancel down the'decimal point

0023/1000

Ignore prefix 'zeroes'

This will not cancel down any further as '23' is a prime number.

So 0.023 is your number, one number would be ones, two numbers is tens, three numbers is hundreds, four numbers is thousands

In this number, there are four numbers (0.023) so our denominator is going to be 1,000

So looking at 0.023, you have two numbers which equals to tens in this equation (yes you have zeroes but ignore those look for the numbers over 0)

So it would be 23/1000

I hope that makes a little sense

0.023 = 23/1000

• 2 months ago

0.023 = 0.023/1

1000*0.023/1000*1=23/1000

thumb rule

numerator (.) means 1 in denominator

and 0 for each of the numerals in the numerator.

Put a "1" underneath the decimal point followed by as many zeroes as there are figures to the right of the decimal point.

Thus we have 23/1000.
