What is 0.0625 as a Fraction

The fraction represents the fractional part of the total. Every question has two components, the numerator and the denominator, where the numerator is the number at the top, and the denominator is the number at the bottom. For instance, the fraction 8/10 contains 8 as the numerator and 10 as the denominator. For greater clarity, we'll use a real-world example: If you divide the apple into two equal pieces, each represents half of the entire apple. We are currently talking about the fraction 0.0625. Since the solution is 1/16, the fraction 0.0625 is 1/16.

Can All Decimal Values be Converted into Fractions?

The answer is a complete no, and not all decimals can be converted into fractions terminating decimal values with a basic number of digits after the decimal value, for example,3845.9345=38459345/10000.

Recurring decimal values have one or more repeating numbers after the infinite decimal point. For example, 9980.3765=99803765/10000=376/1000=37/100=1/3 to be rounded off.

Irrational decimal goes on forever and not forms a repeating pattern, for example, 0.56754638…

Some Questions

Question 1. Leena needs 3/2 cups of sugar to bake a cake. She decided to make 6 cakes for her friends. How many cups of sugar did she need to make the 6 cakes?

Ans: Leena needs 3/2 cup of sugar to make a cake.

The total cups of sugar required to have 6 cakes is calculated by multiplying the sugar needed for 1 cake by the number of cakes that needs to be prepared by Leena and is given by 3/2x6

Now convert the above-mixed fraction to an improper fraction by multiplying the denominator with the whole and adding to the numerator keeping the same denominator as

3/2= (whole x denominator) + numerator)/denominator

(1x2) + 1/2=3/2

The total cups of sugar needed for making 6 cakes =3/2x6=9

Hence Leena needs 9 cups of sugar to make six cakes.
