Firstly, break up 12.5 into two parts - 12 and 0.5. Now convert 0.5 into a fraction which is 1/5. If you are looking for a improper fraction, you take 12 and divide it by 0.5. You should get 24. Then, add 1 to 24 and you get 25. The improper fraction of 12.5 is 25/5.

On the other hand, if you are just looking for a mixed fraction, simply put 12 to left of 1/5 and there you go. It should be 12 and 1/5 (without the 'and' of course if you are writing it on paper).
