How to Convert a Decimal to a Fraction

Convert a decimal to a fraction by putting the decimal as the numerator over 1 as the denominator. Continue multiplying the numerator and denominator by 10 until the numerator is an integer.

Create the Starting Fraction

The first step to converting a decimal to a fraction is to create a starting fraction by making the decimal the numerator and putting that over 1 as the denominator. For example, to convert .75 to a fraction, start by making .75 a fraction like this: .75/1.

Multiply by Ten to Eliminate the Decimal Place

The next step is to multiply the numerator and the denominator by 10 to get rid of the decimal place. Continue multiplying both by 10 until the numerator is an integer value. For example, .75/1 = 7.5/10 = 75/100.

Reduce the Fraction

The final step in converting a decimal to a fraction is to reduce or simplify the fraction. To reduce, find the greatest common factor for the numerator and denominator. The greatest common factor of 75 and 100 is 25. Now, divide both the numerator and the denominator by the greatest common factor. For example, 75/100 = (75 ÷ 25) / (100 ÷ 25) = 3/4.
