Write 0.575 as fraction

Aug 9th, 2014

0.575= 0.5 + 0.075 
0.075= 0.1 x 0.75 

0.5 = 1/2 
0.75 = 3/4 
0.1 = 1/10 

0.1 x 0.75= (3/4)x(1/10) 
-> 0.075= 3/40 
Note 1/2= 20/40 

0.5+ 0.075 = (1/2)+(3/40)-> 0.075=(20/40)+(3/40) -> -> -> 
-> 0.075 =(20+3)/40 -> 0.075 =23/40. 

Or you could just do this 0.575 x 1000 = 575. 
So 575/1000 divide both by 5 and get 115/200 and the divide both by 5 again and you get 23/40. There ya go :-).
