Question:

# Convert 0.62 into a fraction.

A $\frac{\mathrm{31} }{\mathrm{50}}$
explanation

Step 1:
We first have to read the fraction correctly according to the decimal place value. The decimal 0.62 is sixty-two hundredths.
Step 2:
We create a fraction from how the decimal is read. The fraction for sixty-two hundredths is 62/100.
Step 3:
Since we do not see 62/100 as an answer choice it means we must simplify our fraction. We then have to divide both the numerator and denominator of 62/100 by the same number until we get to a fraction in its simplest form. Since both numbers are even, we will first divide both the numerator and denominator by 2.
$\frac{\mathrm{62} }{\mathrm{100}}$ = $\frac{\mathrm{62\div2} }{\mathrm{100\div2}}$
= $\frac{\mathrm{31} }{\mathrm{50}}$
0.62 is $\frac{\mathrm{31} }{\mathrm{50}}$ as a fraction in its simplest form.
