Weegy: A decimal is a fractional number that is written as one or more digits followed by a period, which is called a decimal point. A fraction is a number that represents the parts of a group. You can also think of a fraction as representing a pie. [ If there are six slices of pizza and two are consumed, you can represent the amount eaten versus the amount that was originally available using a fraction. Read more: Instructions 1 Determine the numerator of the fraction, which is the top number. Remove the decimal point from the decimal to determine the numerator. For example, when you remove the decimal point from the decimal .8, you get the whole number 8. 2 Determine the denominator of the fraction, which is the bottom number. Add the number '1' and the total number of zeros required to match the placement of the decimal point. For example, in the decimal .8, the decimal point is located in the tenth place, in which case you would add a '1' and a '0 'to get '10,' or one tenth. Thus, the denominator for '.8' is '10.' 3 Reduce the fraction, if necessary. Cancel down fraction to its lowest terms. Write out the prime factors of the numerator and denominator, which, using the example in step 2, are 2 X 4 (for the numerator 8) and 2 x 5 (for the denominator 10). Look for the factors that appear in both sets of numbers. Cross out the 2 since it appears in both the numerator and denominator. The fraction 8/10 reduces to 4/5. Read more: ]
