# HOW TO CONVERT DECIMAL INTO FRACTION

How to convert decimal into fraction :

In this section, you will learn, how a decimal can be converted into a fraction.

In the process of converting decimal numbers in to fractions, we may have the following situations.

Decimal -----> Improper Fraction

Decimal -----> Mixed Fraction or Mixed Number

Decimal -----> Proper Fraction

Note :

We will have the first and second situations, if the value of the decimal number is greater than 1.

We will have the third situation, if the value of the decimal number is less than 1.

## Decimal ---> Improper Fraction

We can convert a decimal number in to an improper fraction, if the value of the decimal number is greater than 1.

Examples :

1.23,  78.34,  891.565,  125.63

All the above decimal numbers are greater than 1. So we can convert them in to improper fractions.

Now, you can learn, how to convert a decimal number into an improper fraction by watching this video.

## Decimal ---> Mixed Number or Mixed Fraction

We can convert a decimal number in to a mixed number or mixed fraction, if the value of the decimal number is greater than 1.

Examples :

123.23,  8.34,  81.65,  25.63

All the above decimal numbers are greater than 1. So we can convert them in to mixed numbers.

Now, you can learn, how to convert a decimal number into a mixed number or mixed fraction by watching this video.

## Decimal ---> Proper Fraction

We can convert a decimal number in to a proper fraction, if the value of the decimal number is less than 1.

Examples :

0.23,  0.0234,  0.65,  0.1

All the above decimal numbers are less than 1. So we can convert them in to proper fractions.

Now, you can learn, how to convert a decimal number into a proper fraction by watching this video.
