Convert to proper fraction or mixed number do not reduce to lowest 5.27

every decimal number is also a fraction. 5.27 can be written as 5.27/1. Now to convert it to a fraction we need to eliminate the decimal points.So we first multiple the numerator by 100, so that we get 527. [ If we multiply the numberator by 100 we need to multiply the denominator by 100 as well to keep the value of the fraction unchanged. So the resulting fraction we get is 527/100. Now this is an improper fraction where the numerator (527) is greater than the denominator (100) so these fractions get converted to mixed fractions, where one divides the numerator by the denominator. In this

case 100 divides 527 fives times to give 500 and a remainder of 100.So the fraction becomes, 5 27/100 ]
