# Express 0.8 as a fraction in its lowest term?

To convert a decimal to a fraction, write it as a decimal fraction. Hence

0.8 / 1.0

Notice we write it over 1.0.

We always write it over '1 point' and since the decimal is to only one decimal place we only write in one zero.

Hence 0.8 / 1.0

Cancel down the decimal point, hence

08/10

Ignore the prefixed zero' to the '8'.

Hence 8/10

Since both '8' and '10' are even numbers we can cancel down by '2'

Hence

8/10 = 4/5

This will not cancel any further as '5' is a Prime number.

It follows that 0.8 = 4/5

NB If the decimal is to two/three decimal places then you write in 'two/three' zeroes.

e.g.

0.88 = 0.88/1.00 or 0.888 = 0.888 / 1.000

And then proceed as above. lenpollock

### How do you write 1.08 as a fraction?

1.08 written as a fraction is 1 2/25. Here's how to convert 1.08 to a fraction... There is not much that can be done to figure out how to write 1.08 as a fraction, except to literally use what the decimal portion of your number, the .08, means. Since there are 2 digits in 08, the very last digit is the "100th" decimal place. So we can just say that .08 is the same as 08/100. The fraction 1 8/100 is not reduced to lowest terms. We can reduce this fraction to lowest terms by dividing both the numerator and denominator by 4. Why divide by 4? 4 is the Greatest Common Divisor (GCD) or Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of the numbers 8 and 100. So, this fraction reduced to lowest terms is 1 2/25. So your final answer is: 1.08 can be written as the fraction 1 2/25.
