## Convert Decimal to Fraction

**To Convert Decimal to Fraction we have to follow the following steps.**

**Step 1:** Write the given Decimal without the Decimal point as the numerator of the fraction.

**Step 2:** In the Denominator, write 1 followed by as many zeroes, as there are Decimal places in the given Decimal.

**Step 3:** Convert the fraction into simplest form.

### Convert Decimal to Fraction

**Convert Decimal to Fraction – Example 1**

Convert 0.8 into a fraction in its Simplest form?

**Solution**

Step 1: Write the given Decimal without the Decimal point as the numerator of the fraction 8

Step 2: Write 1 followed by as many zeroes, as there are Decimal places in the given Decimal 10 (Since there was 1 decimal place in the given number, we have added 1 zero at the end of 1 )

=

Step 3: Convert the fraction into simplest form

HCF of 8 and 10 is 2

To simplify this we have to divide both the numerator and denominator of the fraction by their HCF i.e,

55 and 100 by 5

In other words = =

Hence, 0.55 =

## Dividing Fractions

### Dividing Whole numbers by Fractions:

- When a whole number is divided by a fraction, whole number is to be multiplied by the reciprocal of that fraction.
- In generalise form, for any whole number ‘a’ and fraction

a ÷ = =

- Reciprocal of a fraction, fraction are said to be reciprocal when we simply reverse the fraction i.e numerator becomes denominator and denominator becomes numerator. Two fractions are said to be reciprocal of each other if their product is 1.
- In generalise form, for any fraction

Reciprocal of = ; = 1

**Example **

Divide 40 by

**Solution**

We have, 40 ÷

### Division of Mixed Fraction by Improper or Proper Fractions

- When a mixed fraction is divide by a proper or improper fraction, convert mixed fraction into improper fraction and then divide them.

**Example**

Divide ÷

**Solution**

We have, ÷

Simplifying, the above equation, we get ÷

In order to divide a Fraction by another Fraction

We have to multiply First Fraction with Reciprocal of the second Fraction

(Since, Reciprocal of )

__Fraction:__

- Fraction is a part of whole number.
- In generalise form for any two natural numbers ‘a’ and ‘b’ fraction is:

Where,

a = Numerator

b = Denominator

**Example 1**

Write down the Numerator and Denominator of the Fraction:

**Explanation**

Numerator is the upper part (Number on Top) of the Fraction

So, the Numerator of is 4

Denominator is the lower number ( Number at Bottom) of the Fraction

So, the Denominator of is 3

**Example 2**

Write down the Numerator and Denominator of the Fraction:

**Explanation**

Numerator is the upper part (Number on Top) of the Fraction

So, the Numerator of is 5

Denominator is the lower number ( Number at Bottom) of the Fraction

So, the Denominator of is 6

## TYPES OF FRACTION

## Types of Fraction – Proper Fraction

Proper fraction is a fraction which represents the part of whole number. In proper fraction numerator is always less than its denominator.

In generalise form for any two integer ‘a’ and ‘b’

where (a < b)

i.e Numerator < Denominator

**Example 1**

Is is a proper fraction?

**Explanation**

Proper fraction is a fraction which represents the part of whole number. In proper fraction numerator is always less than its denominator.

In generalise form for any two integer ‘a’ and ‘b’

where (a < b)

i.e Numerator < Denominator

Numerator = 2

Denominator = 3

Here 2 < 3

i.e, Numerator < Denominator

Hence, is a proper fraction

**Example 2**

Is is a proper fraction?

**Explanation**

Proper fraction is a fraction which represents the part of whole number. In proper fraction numerator is always less than its denominator.

In generalise form for any two integer ‘a’ and ‘b’

where (a < b)

i.e Numerator < Denominator

Numerator = 7

Denominator = 5

Here 7 > 5

i.e, Numerator > Denominator

Hence, is not a proper fraction

## Types of Fraction – Improper Fraction

Improper fractions are the combination of whole number and a proper fraction. Improper fraction is opposite of proper fraction, since in improper fraction numerator is greater than its denominator

In generalise form for any two integer ‘a’ and ‘b’

where (a > b)

i.e Numerator > Denominator

**Example 1**

Is is a improper fraction?

**Explanation**

Improper fractions are the combination of whole number and a proper fraction. Improper fraction is opposite of proper fraction, since in improper fraction numerator is greater than its denominator

In generalise form for any two integer ‘a’ and ‘b’

where (a > b)

i.e Numerator > Denominator

Numerator = 17

Denominator = 9

Here, 17 > 9

i.e, Numerator > Denominator

Hence, is an improper fraction.

**Example 2**

Is is a improper fraction?

**Explanation**

Improper fractions are the combination of whole number and a proper fraction. Improper fraction is opposite of proper fraction, since in improper fraction numerator is greater than its denominator

In generalise form for any two integer ‘a’ and ‘b’

where (a > b)

i.e Numerator > Denominator

Numerator = 7

Denominator = 10

Here, 7 < 10

i.e, Numerator < Denominator

Hence, is not an improper fraction.

## Types of Fraction – Mixed Fraction

Mixed Fraction is a sum of whole number and proper fraction. Improper fraction can be converted into mixed fraction and mixed fraction can be converted into improper fraction with the help of simple multiplication, division and addition.

### Convert Improper Fraction to Mixed Fraction

To Convert Improper Fraction into Mixed Fraction, we follow the steps given below:-

**Step I**: Divide the Numerator by the Denominator.

**Step II**: Write the Mixed Fraction as: ( Quotient + )
