Pie chart representation of the fractional part of decimal 3.55

.55 = 55/100

Level of Precision:
Use the level of precision to break 3.55 down further as a fraction.
For example 3.55 with a precision point of 2 equals:
3 55/100
= 3 11/20

select a precision:

3 55000/100000
= 3 5500/10000
= 3 550/1000
= 3 55/100
= 3 11/20

Keep in mind a mixed number is made up of a whole number (whole numbers have no fractional or decimal part) and a proper fraction part (a fraction where the numerator (the top number) is less than the denominator (the bottom number). In this case the whole number value is 3 and the proper fraction value is 55/100.

Enter a Decimal Value:



Is 3.55 a terminating, recurring or an irrational decimal?

Terminating decimals have a limited number of digits after the decimal point.

Example: 5721.67 = 5721 67/100

Recurring decimals have one or more repeating numbers after the decimal point which continue on infinitely.

Example: 6407.3333 = 6407 3333/10000 = 333/1000 = 33/100 = 1/3 (rounded)

Irrational decimals go on forever and never form a repeating pattern. This type of decimal cannot be expressed as a fraction.

Example: 0.509003899.....

How to convert terminating decimals into fractions

Terminating decimals are rather easy to convert. You can manually convert any terminating decimal into a fraction using these steps:

Step 1: Write the decimal number in fraction format, with the number as the numerator and 1 in the denominator.

Step 2: Now, multiply the numerator and the denominator by 10 for every digit left of the decimal point.

Step 3: Next, reduce the fraction into its simplest form.

Terminating Decimal to Fraction Example: 5427.49 = 5427 49/100


How to convert non-terminating decimals into fractions

Non-terminating decimals are those decimals which have an infinite number of recurring digits. It is a bit tricky to convert non-terminating decimals into fractions. Next we'll explain the steps. For example, let us find the value of 0.4444... in fraction form.

Step 1: Take the repeating decimal you are trying to convert as x. Let x be equal to 0.44444….

Step 2: Multiply the value of X by the power of 10, such that the resulting number has the same number on the right side of the decimal.

Hence, 10x = 4.44444….

Step 3: Subtact the output of step 2 from step 1

10x-x = 4.444444...-0.4444444….

9x= 4

= 4/9

Step 4: Resulting in a fraction number of the decimal number.

x=4/9

8967.6666 = 8967 6666/10000 = 666/1000 = 66/100 = 2/3 (rounded)

Can an irrational decimal be converted into a fraction?

Irrational decimals go on forever and never form a repeating pattern. This type of decimal cannot be expressed as a fraction.
