0.05 as a fraction


0.05 = 1/20 as a fraction

To convert the decimal 0.05 to a fraction, just follow these steps:

Step 1: Write down the number as a fraction of one:

0.05 = 0.05/1

Step 2: Multiply both top and bottom by 10 for every number after the decimal point:

As we have 2 numbers after the decimal point, we multiply both numerator and denominator by 100. So,

0.051 = (0.05 × 100)/(1 × 100) = 5/100.

Step 3: Simplify (or reduce) the above fraction by dividing both numerator and denominator by the GCD (Greatest Common Divisor) between them. In this case, GCD(5,100) = 5.

So, (5÷5)/(100÷5) = 1/20 when reduced to the simplest form.
