Convert a Whole Number to a Fraction
As we know that in mathematics we learn many terms but here we are going to study about fraction and
decimal. Now the in mathematics fraction means the number are in this form s/t and decimal means that
the n umber are in this form `p.xyz'. Now the meaning of fraction is any number in this pattern s/t are
called fraction and fraction are of three types proper fraction, improper fraction and mixed fraction. In
fraction the s part is called numerator and t part is called denominator. Proper fraction means in any
fraction numerator is lesser than denominator. Examples are 2/4, 14/28 etc.
Improper fraction means that in any fraction denominator is lesser than numerator. Examples are 12/4,
34/2 etc. Mixed fractions are those which contain fraction part as well as whole number part. Examples
are 2(2/4), 5(6/8) etc. Now the meaning of decimals are to get the result in more simplified form are
called decimal. Now suppose we have a fraction number and if we want to get the result in more
simplify form then we divide numerator by denominator and the result we get are some time are whole
number or some time in decimal form. Decimal numbers are of three types
1. Exact.
2. Recurring.
3. Others.

Now exact decimal means after dividing we get the result which is no go on and on are called exact
decimal number for example 0.123. Now the meaning of recurring is the result we get after decimal go
on and on and also some of digits are repeated for example 0. 12323232323. In the last other decimal
number means that which go on and on and also no digits are repeating for example 0.12342567465.
Now we are going to show How to Convert a Decimal to a Fraction. So there are few steps which we
have to follow while convert decimal to fraction.
Step1  in this step put 1 in the denominator of decimal like decimal/1.
Step2  in this step we are going to multiply both numerator and denominator but by which number we
are going to divide so we see that if only one digit after decimal then by 10 if two digit after decimal
then 100 and so on.
Step3  now we are going to simplify the fraction and we get the result.
Let's take an example to understand conversion of decimal to fraction more clearly. Suppose we have a
decimal number that is 0.125 Now according to first step 0.125/1. Now we are going to multiply
numerator and denominator by 1000 as there are 3 digits after decimal so according to second step
0.125 x 1000/1 x 1000 = 125/1000
Then we are going to simplify this 125/1000 = 25/200 = 5/40, So by this way we convert decimal
number to fraction. Again take another example so the decimal number is 0.300
Step1  0.300/1
Step2  0.300 x 1000/1 x 1000
Step3  300/1000
Now simplify this
300/1000 = 3/ 10
This is the final result of conversion of a decimal to a fraction.
