### Decimals vs fractions

Decimals and fractions are two different ways of representing the same concept – parts of a whole or a ratio of two numbers. The relationship between decimals and fractions is such that you can convert one form to the other. They are are interchangeable. You can convert a decimal to a fraction by identifying the place value, and you can convert a fraction to a decimal by dividing the numerator by the denominator. The process may involve simplifying the fraction or using decimal places, depending on the situation.

### Convert decimal to fraction

To convert a decimal number to a fraction, you remove the decimal seperator to get the numerator of the fraction. The denominator of the fraction is determined by counting the digits after the decimal seperator (identify the place value). The denominator is 1 followed by this count in zeros.

This process written as a formula:

Let *d* be the decimal number (without the decimal seperator), and *n* be the number of decimal places.

*d*

^{n}

^{2}

When the numerator and denominator have a common factor, you can reduce the fraction to its simplest form.
