Before you understand; How to convert Decimal to Lowest Fractional Form, You must know:

What are Decimal Places ?
What is Decimal Point ?
What are Fractions ?
How to Calculate H.C.F. ?

Steps to convert Decimal to Lowest Fractional Form


  • Step 1: Numerator of fraction is equal to decimal (without the decimal point)
  • Step 2: Find number of Decimal Places in the given decimal
  • Step 3: Denominator of fraction is equal to 1 followed by as many number of zero as there are decimal places.

    After Step 3, we will get a fraction, which will be further converted into lowest form, through following step:
  • Step 4: Find HCF of numerator and denominator of fraction
  • Step 5: Divide both numerator and denominator by HCF and we get fraction in lowest form




    Example : Convert 1.25 into fraction of lowest form.

    Solution: Follow the steps as explained above:

    Step 1: Numerator of fraction is equal to decimal (without the decimal point) and we get: Numerator = 125

    Step 2 : Find number of Decimal Place in the given decimal
    Decimals Places = two (i.e. digits 2 and 5)

    Step 3: Denominator of fraction is equal to 1 followed by as many number of zero as there are decimal place.
    As calculated in step 2, there are two decimal places, so we will write two zero’s next to digit 1 and we get:
    Denominator = 100
    Now, we know that: Fraction = Numerator
    Denominator

    Put the values of numerator and denominator from step 1 & Step 3 and we get:
    Fraction = 125
    100


    Now to convert this fraction into lowest form, follow the below steps
    Step 4: Find HCF of numerator and denominator of fraction (calculated above)
    125
    100

    HCF of 125 and 100 = 25

    Step 5: Divide both numerator and denominator by HCF and we get:
    Fraction = 125 ÷ 25
    100 ÷ 25

    Solve the above division expression and we get:
    Fraction = 5
    4

    Hence, decimal 1.25 when converted into Lowest Fractional Form we get 5
    4
