Work Step by Step

In order to figure out how to write a decimal as a fraction, consider what place each digit of the number is. In the case of two, it is in the tenths place, so it is the same as 2/10, which equals 20/100. Meanwhile, 5 is in the hundredths place, so we know that this is equal to 5 divided by 100, or 5/100. We add these two together to get 25/100, which simplifies to 1/4.
