i can be a negative number a negative number or a zero but i am never a decimal or fraction

If you know how to turn a mixed number into a fraction and a fraction into a decimal do that then make it negative.

A negative fraction need not be a terminating decimal. For example, -2/3 = -0.66... (repeating).

The simplest way is to write it as -0.2 which is a fraction. It is a fraction in decimal form rather than in the form of a ratio. However, that does not stop it being a fraction. Its rational equivalent is -2/10 which can be simplified, if required.

Restate the question: If you can write a fraction as a decimal, can you write a decimal as a fraction?Yes.

To write something in rational form means to write it as a fraction. If you are given a negative number in the form of a fraction, it is already in rational form. If you are given a decimal and wish to turn it into a fraction, just use 10, 100, etc as the denominator. In the case of a repeating decimal there is a method but that's another question!

That already is a decimal fraction.
