To convert a decimal into fraction:

 

1. Write the whole number part first.

2. For the numerator of the fraction, write the digits following the decimal point

3. For the denominator of the fraction, write  1  followed by number of zeroes equal to the number of decimal places in the original decimal.

3. Simplify the fraction if possible.

 

Example :

7.25  =    7   25/100  =  7  1/4

4.26  =    4   26/100  =  4  13/50
