## How decimal to fraction conversion works

- Write down the decimal - we'll focus on decimals that terminate (the calculator above uses up to 3 decimal places)
- Divide the decimal by 1 to create a fraction that looks like this: 1.625 / 1
- Multiply both numerator and denominator by 10 until you get a regular fraction: 1625 / 1000
- Divide both by the largest common denominator: (1625 / 125) / (1000 / 125) = 13 / 8 = 1 5/8
