00:00:00.760 --> 00:00:05.760
Convert 0.268 to a fraction.
00:00:06.800 --> 00:00:10.040
So we’re going from a decimal to a fraction.
00:00:10.760 --> 00:00:12.120
And here is our decimal.
00:00:12.880 --> 00:00:20.440
In order to write this as a fraction, we have to look at the place value of the number all the way to the right.
00:00:21.400 --> 00:00:32.000
We can see that two is in the tenths place, the six is in the hundredths place, and the eight is in the thousandths place.
00:00:32.760 --> 00:00:40.600
So that means we need to take 268 and put it over 1000.
00:00:41.120 --> 00:00:47.400
So we have two hundred and sixty-eight one thousandths.
00:00:48.000 --> 00:00:50.320
Now, a fraction should always be reduced.
00:00:51.040 --> 00:00:56.080
So each of these numbers can be reduced by four.
00:00:56.480 --> 00:00:59.480
Essentially, we can divide them both by four.
00:01:00.040 --> 00:01:08.040
Therefore, our fraction in simplest form will be 67 over 250.
