Chapter 4 - Decimals - 4.6 Fractions and Decimals - 4.6 Exercises: 35

Answer

$\frac{7}{20}$

Work Step by Step

We are given the decimal .35. In order to write this decimal as a fraction, we can divide .35 by 1 (which is equivalent to having .35 as the numerator and 1 as the denominator). $.35\div1=\frac{.35}{1}$ Next, we multiply both the numerator and denominator by factors of 1 until both have no decimal points. $\frac{.35}{1}=\frac{.35\times100}{1\times100}=\frac{35}{100}$ Reduce to simplest form. $\frac{35}{100}=\frac{35\div5}{100\div5}=\frac{7}{20}$
