Convert each of the following into a fraction in its simplest from:

(i) .8

Solution:-

Now write the given decimal without the decimal point as the numerator of the fraction.

In the denominator, write 1 followed by as many zeros as there are decimal places in the given decimal.

Then we have,

= .8 = (8/10)

Now reduce the above fraction to the simplest form.

= (8/10) â€¦ [Ã· by 2]

= (4/5)

(ii) .75

Solution:-

Now write the given decimal without the decimal point as the numerator of the fraction.

In the denominator, write 1 followed by as many zeros as there are decimal places in the given decimal.

Then we have,

= .75 = (75/100)

Now reduce the above fraction to the simplest form.

= (75/100) â€¦ [Ã· by 5]

= (3/4)

(iii) .06

Solution:-

Now write the given decimal without the decimal point as the numerator of the fraction.

In the denominator, write 1 followed by as many zeros as there are decimal places in the given decimal.

Then we have,

= .06 = (6/100)

Now reduce the above fraction to the simplest form.

= (6/100) â€¦ [Ã· by 2]

= (3/50)

(iv) .285

Solution:-

Now write the given decimal without the decimal point as the numerator of the fraction.

In the denominator, write 1 followed by as many zeros as there are decimal places in the given decimal.

Then we have,

= .285 = (285/1000)

Now reduce the above fraction to the simplest form.

= (285/1000) â€¦ [Ã· by 5]

= (5/200)

2. Convert each of the following as a mixed fraction:

(i) 5.6

Solution:-

Now write the given decimal without the decimal point as the numerator of the fraction.

In the denominator, write 1 followed by as many zeros as there are decimal places in the given decimal.

Then we have,

= 5.6 = (56/10)

Now reduce the above fraction to the simplest form.

= (56/10) â€¦ [Ã· by 2]

= (28/5)

= [5(3/5)]

(ii) 12.25

Solution:-

Now write the given decimal without the decimal point as the numerator of the fraction.

In the denominator, write 1 followed by as many zeros as there are decimal places in the given decimal.

Then we have,

= 12.25 = (1225/100)

Now reduce the above fraction to the simplest form.

= (1225/100) â€¦ [Ã· by 5]

= (49/4)

= [12(1/4)]

(iii) 6.004

Solution:-

Now write the given decimal without the decimal point as the numerator of the fraction.

In the denominator, write 1 followed by as many zeros as there are decimal places in the given decimal.

Then we have,

= 6.004 = (6004/1000)

Now reduce the above fraction to the simplest form.

= (6004/1000) â€¦ [Ã· by 2]

= (1501/250)

= [6(1/250)]

(iv) 4.625

Solution:-

Now write the given decimal without the decimal point as the numerator of the fraction.

In the denominator, write 1 followed by as many zeros as there are decimal places in the given decimal.

Then we have,

= 4.625 = (4625/1000)

Now reduce the above fraction to the simplest form.

= (4625/1000) â€¦ [Ã· by 125]

= (37/8)

= [4(5/8)]
