## Writing decimals as fractions

To convert a decimal to a fraction, we write the decimal number as a numerator and we write its place value as the denominator.

If there is a number to the left of the decimal point, we keep that number as a whole number.

**Example 1: 0, point, 07**

0, point, 0, start color #11accd, 7, end color #11accd is start color #11accd, 7, end color #11accd start text, start color #1fab54, h, u, n, d, r, e, d, t, h, s, end color #1fab54, end text. So, we write start color #11accd, 7, end color #11accd over start color #1fab54, 100, end color #1fab54.

**Example 1: 2, point, 1**

start color #f9685d, 2, end color #f9685d, point, start color #11accd, 1, end color #11accd is start color #f9685d, 2, end color #f9685d and start color #11accd, 1, end color #11accd start text, start color #1fab54, t, e, n, t, h, end color #1fab54, end text. start color #f9685d, 2, end color #f9685d stays a whole number. Then we write start color #11accd, 1, end color #11accd over start color #1fab54, 10, end color #1fab54.
