Best Answer

Step 1: Write down the decimal divided by 1, like this: decimal/1

Step 2: Multiply both top and bottom by 10 for every number after the decimal point. For example, if there are two numbers after the decimal point, then use 100, if there are three, then use 1000, etc.

Step 3: Simplify ( or reduce) the fraction.

How fractions are related to repeating decimals and terminating decimals?

All rational fractions - one integer divided by a non-zero integer - give rise to repeating or terminating decimals. If, for the fraction in its simplest form, the denominator can be expressed as a product of powers of only 2 and 5 then the decimal will terminate. If the denominator has any prime factor other than 2 or 5 the decimal will be recurring. All non-rational fractions will have infinite, non-recurring decimal representations.
