Best Answer

First, take the fraction and divide to express it as a decimal (it is only necessary to approximate out to the hundredths place for this rounding). Then, look at the hundredths place (the second after the decimal). If it is 5 or greater, round the tenths place (the first digit after the decimal) up to the next number. Otherwise keep it the same. Now truncate (drop off) the remaining digits.

Example: 1/8 = 0.125. 2 is less than 5 so we round down. Thus we get 0.1.
