## What is 0.8 as a fraction

**Introduction**

**:**

A fraction is a number that can represent part of a whole. The earliest fractions were reciprocals of integers: ancient symbols representing one part of two, one part of three, one part of four, and so on. A much later development was the common or "vulgar" fractions which are still used today (½, ⅝, ¾, etc.) and which consist of a numerator and denominator.(source : Wikipedia)

Here we are going to learn about converting decimals as a fraction , what is 0.8 as fraction and some other problems on Converting Decimal to Fraction.

What is 0.8 as a fraction:

Before get into the problem we need to know how to convert the decimals into fractions.

**Method to convert decimals into fraction:**

- To convert the decimals into fraction, multiply and divide the decimal by the number ten or multiples of ten.

**Problem:**

What is 0.8 as a fraction ?

**Solution:**

Given, decimal 0.8

We need to find the fraction for 0.8

Multiply and divide 0.8by 10,

0.8 × `(10/10) ` = ( 0.8 × 10) / 10

= `8 /10`

0.8 as the fraction `8 /10` .

We can also find so many equivalent fractions.

0.8 = `8 /10` .

Multiply `8 /10` by 2 ,

( 8 × 2 ) / ( 10 × 2 ) = 16 / 20

0.8 = `8 /10` = `16 / 20`

We can find more equivalent fraction. Multiply 16/20 by 5 on both numerator and denominator.

`(16 * 5 ) / ( 20 * 5 )` = `80 / 100`

0.8 = `8 /10` = `16 / 20` = `80/ 100`

**Answer:**0.8 as fractions `8/10` , `16/ 20` , ` 80 / 100`

What is 0.08 as a fraction:

**Problem 1:**

What is 0.08 as a fraction ?

**Solution:**

Given , 0.08 as a fraction,

To find the fraction for 0.08, Multiply and divide 0.08 by 100,

0.08 × (100 /100 ) = `( 0.08 * 100 ) / 100`

= `8/100`

0.08 as the fraction` 8/100` .

For more equivalent fractions, divide and multiply the `8/100` by the same number.

For example,

0.08 =` 8/100` .

Multiply `8/100` by 2 ,

( 8 × 2 ) / ( 100 × 2) = `16/ 200`

0.08 = 8/100 = `16/ 200`

For another equivalent fraction, consider the following,

For example, 0.08 =` 8/100` = `16/ 200`

multiply `16/200` by 5 on both numerator and denominator,

`(16 * 5 ) / ( 200 * 5 )` =` 80/1000`

**Answer :**0.08 = `8/100` = `16/200 ` = `80/1000`

**Problem 2:**

What is 8 as a fraction?

**Solution:**

Given, integer 8

We need to find the fraction for 8

Multiply and divide 8 by 10,

8 × `(10/10)` = ( 8 × 10) / 10

=` 80 /10`

8 as the fraction `80 /10` .

We can also find so many equivalent fractions.

8 = `80/10` .

Multiply `80/10` by 2 ,

( 80 × 2 ) / ( 10 × 2 ) = `160 / 20`

8 =` 80 /10` = `160/ 20`

We can find another equivalent fraction by, multiplying 160/20 by 5 on both denominator and numerator.

`(160 * 5 ) / ( 20 * 5 )` = `800 / 100`

8 =` 80/10` = `160/ 20` = `800/ 100`

**Answer:**8 as fractions `80/10` , `160/ 20` , `800/ 100`
