Help your students prepare for their Maths GCSE with this free converting decimals to fractions worksheet of 44 questions and answers
Fractions and decimals are different formats for representing a part of a whole. In order to convert decimal numbers to fractions we need to write the numbers after the decimal point as the numerator and then use the place value of the decimal to decide what the denominator will be. For example, if there is one decimal place (tenths), the denominator will be 10, if there are two decimal places (hundredths) the denominator will be 100 and so on. We are often asked to write a fraction in its simplest form so once we have a fraction we need to ensure it is simplified as much as possible.
To convert fractions to decimals we can either find an equivalent fraction with a denominator of 100 (then the numerator will represent the hundredths of the decimal), or we can divide the numerator by the denominator.
Students can then continue their understanding of converting decimals to fractions with additional number worksheets, for example a fractions worksheet or a rounding worksheet.
