 Decimal Point Place Value of digits in decimals Expanded Form of Decimal Read Decimals Decimal Places Decimal to Fraction Decimal to Mixed Fraction Decimal to Lowest Fractional form Decimal into Percentage Like Decimals Unlike Decimals Difference Like & Unlike Decimals Comparing or Ordering Decimals Ascending Order of Decimals Descending Order of Decimals Multiplication of Decimals Division of Decimals

Before you understand; How to convert Decimal to fraction, You must know:

What are Decimal Places ?
What is a Decimal Point ?
What are Fractions ?

### Steps to convert decimal to fraction

In order to convert decimal into fraction; follow the following steps:
• Step 1: Numerator of fraction is equal to decimal (without the decimal point)
• Step 2: Find number of Decimal Place in the given decimal
• Step 3: Denominator of fraction is equal to 1 followed by as many number of zero as there are decimal place.

Example: Convert decimal 4.2 into fraction.

Solution: Follow the steps as explained above:

Step 1: Numerator of fraction is equal to decimal (without the decimal point) and we get: Numerator = 42

Step 2 : Find number of Decimal Place in the given decimal and we get:
Decimals Places = one only

Step 3: Denominator of fraction is equal to 1 followed by as many number of zero as there are decimal places.
As calculated in step 2, there is only one decimal place, so we will write one zero next to digit 1 and we get:
Denominator = 10

Now, we know that:
 Fraction = NumeratorDenominator

Put the values of numerator and denominator from step 1 & Step 3 and we get:
Fraction = 42
10

 Hence, decimal 4.2 is equal to Fraction 4210
