Relating Fractions to Decimals
Fractions and Decimals: Learn
Decimals are a type of fractional number. Decimal fractions always have a denominator based on a power of 10. For examples, the decimal 0.7 is equivalent to 7/10, and the decimal 0.79 is equivalent to the decimal 79/100.
Sometimes the fraction gets simplified based on equivalent fractions. We know that 5/10 is equivalent to 1/2 since 1/2 times 5/5 is 5/10. Therefore, the decimal 0.5 is equivalent to 1/2 or 2/4, etc.
