CONVERTING DECIMALS TO FRACTION

Converting decimals into fractions is really simple.

Let's try converting this number to fractions.
0.8 repeating.

0.8 can be shown as what ever you like. But I'll use x.

x=0.8 repeating.

Step 1.
Convert the decimal into a whole number and multiply it by ten because it's in the tenth place.

Step 2.
Subtract the 8.8 to the 0.8.

Step 3: Get rid of the decimal.
To do that you need to divide 9x to 9.

Step 4. Put the 9 below the 8.

Step 5. Try to convert it into a smaller fraction.

Now lets try to convert this decimal number to a fraction.

X=0.08 repeating.

Step 1.
Convert the decimal into a whole number and multiply it by one hundred because it's in the hundredth's place.

Step 2.
Subtract 8.88 repeating to 0.08

Step 3.

Get rid of the decimal.
To do that you need to divide 99 x to 99 and whatever you do to one side you do it to 8.8 too.

Step 4. Convert it into a whole number
8.8 x 10
99 x10

Step 5.

x= 88 over 990...CONVERT!!! 8 over 90 is the answer. So..... x=8 over 90.
