# What is 0.05 as a fraction?

Hey there! Did you know that decimals and fractions are different ways to show parts of a whole? It's really cool to be able to change between them. Let's learn how to do this step by step, turning 0.05 into a fraction!

## Answer: 0.05 as a fraction is 1/20

### Straightforward Method: Convert 0.05 to Fraction

**Step 1: **

Identify the place value of the last digit, which is 5 in this case. It's in the 2 place.

**Step 2: **

Write down the decimal as a fraction with the decimal number as the numerator and a denominator that corresponds to the place value of the last digit. For 0.05:

Fraction = 5/100

**Step 3:**

Simplify the fraction, if necessary, by finding the greatest common divisor (GCD) of the numerator and denominator and dividing both by it.

For those rows where factor is 1 we don’t have the para below

In this case, both 5 and 100 can be divided by 5:

Fraction after simplification = 1/20

So, 0.05 as a fraction is 1/20.

**To summarize the steps:**

- Identify the place value of the last digit.
- Write down the decimal as a fraction with the decimal number as the numerator and the appropriate power of 10 as the denominator.
- Simplify the fraction, if feasible, by finding the greatest common divisor and dividing both the numerator and denominator by it.
- Remember, practice makes perfect! The more you work with these conversions, the more comfortable you'll become with the process.

**Keep in mind!**

Some decimals might not have a finite fraction representation (like the decimal expansion of π), while others might have repeating patterns (like 0.333... for 1/3). In those cases, the conversion process might involve more advanced techniques.

**Remember, practice makes perfect!** The more you work with these conversions, the more comfortable you'll become with the process.
