    To convert a Decimal to a Fraction follow these steps:

    • Step 1: Write down the decimal divided by 1, like this:   decimal1
    • Step 2: Multiply both top and bottom by 10 for every number after the decimal point. (For example, if there are two numbers after the decimal point, then use 100, if there are three then use 1000, etc.)
    • Step 3: Simplify (or reduce) the fraction


    ►Example: Convert 0.75 to a fraction

    Step 1: Write down 0.75 divided by 1:


    Step 2: Multiply both top and bottom by 100 (because there are 2 digits after the decimal point so that is 10×10=100):

    × 100
    right over arrow
    0.75/1 = 75/100
    right under arrow
    × 100

    (Do you see how it turns the top number into a whole number?)

    Step 3: Simplify the fraction (this took me two steps):

      ÷5   ÷ 5  
    right over arrow   right over arrow
    75/100 = 15/20 = 3/4
    right under arrow   right under arrow
      ÷5   ÷ 5  


    Answer = 3/4


    Note: 75/100 is called a decimal fraction and 3/4 is called a common fraction!


    ►Example: Convert 0.625 to a fraction

    Step 1: write down:


    Step 2: multiply both top and bottom by 1,000 (3 digits after the decimal point, so 10×10×10=1,000)


    Step 3: Simplify the fraction (it took me two steps here):

      ÷ 25   ÷ 5  
    right over arrow   right over arrow
    625/1000 = 25/40 = 5/8
    right under arrow   right under arrow
      ÷ 25   ÷ 5  


    Answer = 5/8

    When there is a whole number part, put the whole number aside and bring it back at the end:


    ►Example: Convert 2.35 to a fraction

    Put the 2 aside and just work on 0.35

    Step 1: write down:


    Step 2: multiply both top and bottom by 100 (2 digits after the decimal point so that is 10×10=100):


    Step 3: Simplify the fraction:

    ÷ 5
    right over arrow
    35/100 = 7/20
    right under arrow
    ÷ 5

    Bring back the 2 (to make a mixed fraction)

    Answer = 2 7/20


    ►Example: Convert 0.333 to a fraction

    Step 1: Write down:


    Step 2: Multiply both top and bottom by 1,000 (3 digits after the decimal point so that is 10×10×10=1,000)


    Step 3: Simplify Fraction:

    Can't get any simpler!


    Answer = 333/1000


    ******A Special Note******

    If you really meant 0.333... (in other words 3s repeating forever which is called 3 recurring) then we need to follow a special argument. In that case we write down:


    Then multiply both top and bottom by 3:

    × 3
    right over arrow
    0.333.../1 = 0.999.../3
    right under arrow
    × 3

    And 0.999... = 1 

    Answer = 1/3

    Use Long Division! 

    ►Example: here is what long division of 58 looks like:

     8 )5.000

    In that case we inserted extra zeros and did 5.0008 to get 0.625


    ******Another Method******

    Yet another method you may like is to follow these steps:

    • Step 1: Find a number you can multiply by the bottom of the fraction to make it 10, or 100, or 1000, or any 1 followed by 0s. 
    • Step 2: Multiply both top and bottom by that number.
    • Step 3. Then write down just the top number, putting the decimal point in the correct spot (one space from the right hand side for every zero in the bottom number)


    ►Example: Convert 34 to a Decimal

    Step 1: We can multiply 4 by 25 to become 100

    Step 2: Multiply top and bottom by 25:

    right over arrow
    3/4  =  75/100
    right under arrow

    Step 3: Write down 75 with the decimal point 2 spaces from the right (because 100 has 2 zeros);

    Answer = 0.75


    ►Example: Convert 3/16 to a Decimal

    Step 1: We have to multiply 16 by 625 to become 10,000

    Step 2: Multiply top and bottom by 625:

    right over arrow
    3/16  =  1,875/10,000
    right under arrow

    Step 3: Write down 1875 with the decimal point 4 spaces from the right (because 10,000 has 4 zeros);

    Answer = 0.1875


    ►Example: Convert 1/3 to a Decimal

    Step 1: There is no way to multiply 3 to become 10 or 100 or any "1 followed by 0s", but we can calculate an approximate decimal by choosing to multiply by, say, 333

    Step 2: Multiply top and bottom by 333:

    right over arrow
    1/3  =  333/999
    right under arrow

    Step 3: Now, 999 is nearly 1,000, so let us write down 333 with the decimal point 3 spaces from the right (because 1,000 has 3 zeros):

    Answer = 0.333 (accurate to only 3 decimal places !!)

    Equivalent Fractions have the same value, even though they may look different. These fractions are really the same.

    1/2  =  2/4  =  4/8

    Why are they the same? Because when you multiply or divide both the top and bottom by the same number, the fraction keeps it's value.


    The rule to remember is:

    "Change the bottom by multiplying or dividing,
    And the same to the top must be applied"

    Here is why those fractions are really the same:

      × 2   × 2  
    right over arrow   right over arrow
    1  =  2  =  4
    2 4 8
    right under arrow   right under arrow
      × 2   × 2  

    And visually it looks like this:

    1/2   2/4   4/8
    pie 1/2 = pie 2/4 = pie 4/8


    Here are some more equivalent fractions, this time by dividing:

      ÷ 3   ÷ 6  
    right over arrow   right over arrow
    18  =  6  =  1
    36 12 2
    right under arrow   right under arrow
      ÷ 3   ÷ 6  

    Choose the number you divide by carefully, so that the results (both top and bottom) stay whole numbers. 

    If we keep dividing until we can't go any further, then we have simplified the fraction (made it as simple as possible).



    • You can make equivalent fractions by multiplying or dividing both top and bottom by the same amount.
    • You only multiply or divide, never add or subtract, to get an equivalent fraction.
    • Only divide when the top and bottom stay as whole numbers.

    Numbers can be grouped in a variety of ways according to their characteristics. Sometimes, a number may fit into multiple groupings. For example, -3/4 is both a fraction and a negative number. The number 27 can be grouped with whole numbers and with integers.


    The set of natural numbers, consists of the numbers that you use to count objects: {1, 2, 3, 4, 5, …}. The set of whole numbers is made up of the set of natural numbers and the number 0, the additive identity. Another set of numbers is the set of integers, which is a set that includes all of the whole numbers and their additive inverses: {..., −3, −2, −1, 0, 1, 2, 3, …}


    When you perform an operation such as addition or multiplication on the numbers in a set, the operation could produce a defined value that is also in the set. When this happens, the set is said to be closed under the operation. The set of integers is said to be closed under the operation of addition. This means that for every two integers a and b, the sum a + b is also an integer.


    A rational number is a number that can be written in the form a/b, where a and b are both integers and b is not equal to 0. A rational number can be written as either a terminating or repeating decimal.


    A terminating decimal is a decimal that has a finite number of non-zero digits (e.g.,1/8 = 0.125). A repeating decimal is a decimal with digits that repeat in sets of one or more. You can use two different notations to represent repeating decimals. One notation is bar notation, which shows one set of digits that repeats with a bar over the repeating digits (e.g., 1/3 = .3...). Another notation shows two sets of digits that repeat with dots to indicate repetition (e.g.,1/3 = 0.33...). You can use algebra to determine the fraction that is represented by a repeating decimal. For example, write the decimal 0.44... as a fraction.


    Ìrrå†ïðñål ñµmßêr§:
    All other decimals are irrational numbers, because these decimals cannot be written as fractions in the form a/b, where a and b are integers and b is not equal to 0.

    What happens when you have a square root that is not a perfect square?


    If your square root is not a perfect square it is called an irrational square root. Irrational square roots always fall between the square roots of the perfect squares they are between.

    • Writing Ratios

    We use ratios to make comparisons between two things. When we express ratios in words, we use the word "to"--we say "the ratio of something to something else." Ratios can be written in several different ways: as a fraction, using the word "to", or with a colon.

    Examples:                 3/6               3 to 6                          3:6

    Which way you choose will depend on the problem or the situation.

    There are other ways to make the same comparison, such as using equal ratios. To find an equal ratio, you can either multiply or divide each term in the ratio by the same number (but not zero).

    For example, if we divide both terms in the ratio 3:6 by the number three, then we get the equal ratio, 1:2. If we multiply 1:2 by 4, then we get the equal ratio 4:8. Do you see that these ratios both represent the same comparison (equivalent fractions)?




    Short cut: You can cross multiply the diagonals of the fractions. If they are equal to each other you have equivalent ratios.





    • Finding Unit Rate

    A Rate is a ratio comparing two different units. Example: A bike travels 54 miles in 4 hours. When written as a rate: You can write equivalent rates by multiplying or dividing the numerator and denominator by the same number.


    Unit Rate is a ratio of two different measurements where the 2nd measurement is 1. In “Kid Language” it’s the amount (cost, miles, # of objects, etc) for 1 (1 item, 1 mile, 1 hour, 1 ounce, etc).


    Let's Practice!


    Example #1: Rate of 180 miles in 3 hours. To turn this into a unit rate, we need the denominator to be 1. In other words, we need to find out how many miles were traveled in 1 hour. Let’s divide!


    Example #2: You can buy a 40 oz jar of peanut butter for $5.25, or you can buy a 15 oz jar for $2.10. Which is the better deal? If we find out the cost per ounce for each jar, then we can determine which has a better price. To do this, we need to divide. ALWAYS put “money on top.”


    complex fraction is a fraction where the numerator, denominator, or both contain a fraction.



    Another way to put it is to say that a complex fraction is a ratio of two fractions. Use your rules for multiplying rational numbers.


    The steps are:

    1. Leave the first fraction/numberin the equation alone.
    2. Turn the divisionsign into a multiplication sign.
    3. Flip the second fraction/numberover (find its reciprocal).
    4. Multiply the numerators (top numbers) of the two fractions
    5. Multiply the denominators (bottom numbers) of the two fractions






    Example #1:


    Example #2:




    Two quantities are in a Proportional Relationship if all of the ratios that relate the quantities are equivalent.

    A proportion is an equation that represents equal ratios.

    Constant of Proportionality is the constant multiple that relates proportional quantities x and y. It is the value of the ratio  and is represented by k.




    Constant of Proportionality exists when the ratio of two quantities in a table, graph, or ordered pairs simplify to the same unit rate. To check if there is a constant of proportionality: From Ordered Pairs (x, y)/Table: make a ratio (fraction) for all ordered pairs. Then find the unit rate (divide: y/x). The unit rate must be the same for all pairs.

    It is also called the unit rate. 
    • It is what you multiply times x to get y.
    • It is typically represented by the letter k.  (y = kx   or  y/x = k)
