Work Step by Step

$0.875$ can be read as "eight hundred seventy-five thousandths," which helps us write the fraction: $\frac{875}{1000}$. Additionally, 875 is in the thousandth's place value, meaning we need to put 875 over 1000. Now, to finish our answer, we need to reduce. We can divide the numerator and the denominator by 125 to get our answer in simplest form: $\frac{875\div125}{1000\div125}$ = $\frac{7}{8}$
