- Converting an Ordinary Decimal to a Fraction
- Converting a Complex Decimal to a Fraction
Summary: This module is from Fundamentals of Mathematics by Denny Burzynski and Wade Ellis, Jr. This module discusses how to covert a decimal to a fraction. By the end of the module students should be able to convert an ordinary decimal and a complex decimal to a fraction.
We can convert a decimal fraction to a fraction, essentially, by saying it in words, then writing what we say. We may have to reduce that fraction.
