# Thread: turn decimals into fractions and fractions into decimals

1. ## turn decimals into fractions and fractions into decimals

How can you turn a 3/4 into a decimal without using a calculator and like 1.44 into a fraction w/o using a calculator.

my school is to slow to teach us math without a calculator

2. depends on what the problem is bro

3. 0.75 is 3/4
(100 divide by 4 = 25 multiplied by 3)
and 1.44 into a fraction... who the fuck knows lol
i think its like no no... never mind :P

5. The easiest way to go from fraction to decimal is to put the value over 10 ^ n where n = any positive integer. This means that for 3/4, multiply by 25/25 to get 75/100. 75/100 is obviously .75 because .xy is xy/100. To go from 1.44 to fraction, do the same in reverse. 1.44 = 144/100. 144/100 is equal to 36/25. Because the prime factors of 36 are 2 ^ 2, and 3 ^ 2, and the prime factors of 25 are 5 ^ 2, there are no common factors and the number cannot be simplified further.

6. To Turn Fraction into Decimal, Do the top number divided by bottom number (;p, Forgot what they called); in this case 3 divided by 4. to turn Decimal into fraction, just put 100 under number and times the number by 100.

7. get out of essentials then.
