Some decimals are just approximations or estimates of a certain number while other fractions represent the exact value of it.
In some situations like measuring ingredients, it is appropriate to use fractions rather than decimals.
Simplification Steps:
Therefore, `0.6` in fraction is `3/5`.
4/33
The decimal is non-terminating.
Multiply the decimal by a power of 10 that will move the repeating digit/s to the left of the decimal point. Use 100 since there are 2 digits repeating.
`0.1212 × 100 = 12.12 `
Divide the repeating digits by the difference between the power of 10 used to multiply the decimal and 1.
`12/(100-1)` = `12/99`
Reducing to lowest terms;
`12/99` = `(2 × 2 × 3)/(3 × 3 × 11)` = `(2 × 2)/(3 × 11)` = `4/33`
Therefore, the fraction form of `0.1212 ` is `4/33`.
The decimal is terminating.
Therefore, `0.625` in fraction is `5/8`.
The decimal number doesn't contain repated number and hence it is terminating.
Therefore, `0.125` in fraction is `1/8`.
