Decimal to Fraction Calculator

A Decimal to Fraction Calculator is a free online tool that helps you convert a decimal number into its fractional form. Decimal numbers are numbers that have a decimal point, and fractions represent numbers as a ratio of two integers (a numerator and a denominator). Converting a decimal to a fraction is often useful when you want to express a precise value or work with fractions in mathematical calculations.

Here's how you can convert a decimal to a fraction manually:

  • Identify the Decimal: Let's say you have a decimal like 0.75.
  • Convert the Decimal to a Fraction:
    • Count the number of decimal places after the decimal point. In this case, there are two decimal places.
    • Create a fraction with the decimal as the numerator and 1 followed by as many zeros as there are decimal places as the denominator. For 0.75, it would be 75/100.
  • Simplify the Fraction (if needed): Reduce the fraction to its simplest form by dividing both the numerator and denominator by their greatest common divisor (GCD). In this example, the GCD of 75 and 100 is 25, so you can simplify the fraction to 3/4 by dividing both numerator and denominator by 25.

So, 0.75 is equivalent to the fraction 3/4.

Online Decimal to Fraction Calculators used to perform these conversions automatically. Simply input the decimal number, and the calculator will give you the equivalent fraction.
