1.6 = 8/ = 1*3/ as a fraction
To convert the decimal 1.6 to a fraction, just follow these steps:
Step 1: Write down the number as a fraction of one:
1.6 = 1.6/
Step 2: Multiply both top and bottom by 10 for every number after the decimal point:
As we have 1 numbers after the decimal point, we multiply both numerator and denominator by 10. So,
1.6/ = (1.6 × 10)/ = 16/.
(16÷2)/ = 8/ when reduced to the simplest form.
As the numerator is greater than the denominator, we have an IMPROPER fraction, so we can also express it as a MIXED NUMBER, thus 16/ is also equal to 1*3/ when expressed as a mixed number.
