First things first, if you don't know what a numerator and a denominator are in a fraction, we need to recap that:

(numerator)/ (denominator)

Here's the little secret you can use to instantly transform any fraction to a decimal: Simply divide the numerator by the denominator:

= /

= ÷

=

That's literally all there is to it! / as a decimal is

I wish I had more to tell you about converting a fraction into a decimal but it really is that simple and there's nothing more to say about it.

If you want to practice, grab yourself a pen and a pad and try to calculate some fractions to decimal format yourself. If you're really feeling lazy you can use our calculator below instead!

### Why would you want to convert / to a decimal?

This is a great question. We have lots of calculations on this site about converting a fraction into a decimal but why would you want or need to do that in the first place?

Well, first of all it's just a good way to represent a fraction in a better way that allows you to do common arithmetic with them (like addition, subtration, division and multiplication).

In real life, we mostly deal with decimals (like currency, for example) and since our brains are taught from a young age to understand and compare decimals more often than they are fractions, it's easier to understand and compare fractions if they are converted to a decimal first!

Here's a little real life example of converting a fraction to a decimal when using quantities. Let's say you're cooking and you can usually see fractionally how much of an ingredient is left in a pack. However, electronic scales measure weight in decimals and not as a fraction of the ingredient left. This makes converting between fractions and decimals a useful skill in cooking.

Hopefully this tutorial has helped you to understand how to convert a fraction to a decimal number. You can now go forth and convert fractions to decimal as much as your little heart desires!

## What is as a fraction?

Looking to convert to a fraction? If so, you're in the right place! In this step-by-step guide, we'll show you exactly what the fractional form of is and show you exactly how to calculate it so you can convert any decimal number to a fraction. Let's go!

There are many reasons why you might want to convert a decimal to a fraction. The most common reason is because your teacher told you to! But beyond that, the decimal form of a fraction makes it very easy to compare two fractions quickly without having to think about it.

A quick fraction recap here before we begin. The number above the fraction line is the numerator, and the number below the fraction line is the denominator. If you've done much work with fractions you probably already know that, but it never hurts to double check!

Okay, so the first thing to do here is show you that any number can be a fraction if you use a 1 as the denominator. Take a look:

/1

What we really want to do though, is get rid of the decimal places completely so that the numerator in our fraction is a whole number. To do this, we have to count the numbers after the decimal point, which in this case is

To get a whole fraction we need to multiply both the numerator and the denominator by 10 if there is one number after the decimal point, if there are two numbers, 1, if it's three numbers and 10, if it'swell, you get the idea!

In our case is 3 digits long so we need to multiply the numerator and denominator by

Now we just need to do that multiplication to get our whole fraction:

x /1 x =/

The next step is to simplify this fraction and, to do that, we need to find the greatest common factor (GCF). This is sometimes also known as:

• Greatest Common Divisor (GCD)
• Highest Common Factor (HCF)
• Greatest Common Denominator (GCD)

The GCF can be a bit complicated to work out by hand but you can use our handy GCF calculator to figure it out.

In the case of and , the greatest common divisor is 1. This means that to simplify the fraction we can divide by the numerator and the denominator by 1 and we get:

/1//1=/

And there you have it! In just a few short steps we have figured out what is as a fraction. The complete answer for your enjoyment is below:

43 /

Note: because is greater than we have simplified this fraction even further to a mixed fraction.

Hopefully this tutorial has helped you to understand how to convert a decimal number into a fraction. You can now go forth and convert decimals to fractions as much as your little heart desires!

### Random Decimal to Fraction Calculations

If you really love decimal to fraction conversions and just can't get enough, here are some random calculations for you:

Sours: https://visualfractions.com/calculator/decimal-as-fraction/what-isas-a-fraction/ is a repeating decimal number and you want to convert it to a fraction or mixed number. When you say repeating, you could mean that 7, 77, or is repeating.

Thus, there are three different ways of answering "What is repeating as a fraction?" Here are the three questions formulated in mathematical terms with the vinculum line above the decimal numbers that are repeating.

repeating as a fraction
repeating as a fraction
repeating as a fraction

The formula to convert any repeating decimal number to a fraction is as follows:

 (DN x F) - NRP D

DN= Decimal Number

F= 10 if one repeating number, if two repeating numbers, if three repeating numbers, etc.

NRP= Non-repeating part of decimal number.

D= 9 if one repeating number, 99 if two repeating numbers, if three repeating numbers, etc.

Below shows you how to get the answer to each of the three different questions above using our formula.

Math Antics - Convert any Fraction to a Decimal Do you want to know how to write the decimal number as a fraction?

Here we will show you step-by-step how to convert so you can write it as a fraction.

You can take any number, such as , and write a 1 as the denominator to make it a fraction and keep the same value, like this:

/ 1

To get rid of the decimal point in the numerator, we count the numbers after the decimal in , and multiply the numerator and denominator by 10 if it is 1 number, if it is 2 numbers, if it is 3 numbers, and so on.

Therefore, in this case we multiply the numerator and denominator by to get the following fraction:

/

Then, we need to divide the numerator and denominator by the greatest common divisor (GCD) to simplify the fraction.

The GCD of and is 1. When we divide the numerator and denominator by 1, we get the following:

/

Therefore, as a fraction is as follows:

/

Bonus: If the answer above is an improper fraction, then we also display the mixed number answer below:

## What is as a fraction?

Check out our introduction to decimal numbers page for basics on decimal numbers. Also take a look out our fractions section of the website, it may be helpful for this matter.

As we've seen in other parts of this website, decimal numbers can be represented as fractions (and vice-versa). See blow for instructions on how to do this.

### How to convert to a fraction

• Step 1: Take your decimal number and set it as the numerator of a fraction with denominator of 1. In this case / 1.
• Step 2: Of course, we want both parts of the fraction (numerator and denominator) to be integers. To convert this into a fraction of integer parts, we need to multiply. You need to multiply both the numerator and denominator by 10 for each digit in after the deicmal place.
• Step 3: In this case, there are 3 after the decimal, so we need to multiply both numerator and denominator by 10, 3 times. This is the same as multiplying each by
• Step 4: We can see now that we have / after multiplying both numerator and denominator by
• Step 5 (optional): Now that we have our answer, we can simplify the fraction to /

It is often easier to use a calculator to solve these types of problems, but it is also possible to do it by hand. If you want to practice doing it by hand, you may want to double check your solution with a calculator afterward.

### When is this useful?

Sometimes it is more useful to convey a decimal number as a fraction instead. In those cases, this type of conversion is helpful.
