Step 1: Write the digits right of the decimal as an integer. This is your numerator.

Step 2: Count the number of digits to the right of the decimal, then take 10 to this power. This number will be your denominator.

Step 3: reduce your new fraction, if possible.


Write 12.125 as a mixed number.

numerator = 125

denominator = 103 (3 digits right of the decimal)

= 1000

125/1000 reduces to 1/8, so 12.125 = 12 1/8
