i need some to explain how to turn 1.05 into a fraction

Do you know how to add fractions?

1 + 0.05 equals 1.05.

So if you can convert 1 to a fraction and 0.05 to a fraction, you can add the two fractions together. Your answer is 1.05 as a fraction.

Continuing with Leo's previous answer, remember that when you add fractions together, they need to have a common denominator. Here are some more steps toward the answer.

0.05 = 5/100 = 1/20

Add 1 to that, and you get 1 1/20, which is a mixed number. You can also write it as
20/20 + 1/20 = 21/20

which is a pure fraction and is the answer that you seek.

Just say the number aloud to yourself...one and five hundredths. That is the fraction too. 1 5/100 which reduces to 1 1/20.

It is 1 5/100 because the 5 is in the 100ths place, and there is a 1 in front of the decimal so that is the whole number.

To turn 1.05 into a fraction, follow these steps:

1. Identify the whole number part of the decimal. In this case, the whole number part is 1.

2. Identify the decimal part. In this case, the decimal part is 0.05.

3. Convert the decimal part into a fraction. In this case, 0.05 can be written as 5/100.

4. Simplify the fraction if possible. In this case, both the numerator and denominator can be divided by 5, resulting in 1/20.

5. Combine the whole number part and the fraction part. In this case, the whole number part is 1 and the fraction part is 1/20.

Therefore, 1.05 can be written as the fraction 1 1/20.

To turn 1.05 into a fraction, we can follow these steps:

Step 1: Rewrite the decimal as a fraction.
Since there are two decimal places in 0.05, we can write it as 5/100. This is because the decimal point separates the tenths and hundredths place, and 0.05 represents 5 hundredths.

Step 2: Simplify the fraction (if needed).
In this case, the fraction 5/100 can be simplified by dividing both the numerator and the denominator by their greatest common factor, which is 5.
Dividing 5 by 5 results in 1, and dividing 100 by 5 results in 20. So, 5/100 simplifies to 1/20.

Step 3: Add the whole number part (1) and the fractional part (1/20) together.
Since 1 is a whole number, we can write it as 1/1 to make it a fraction. To add fractions, they must have a common denominator. In this case, the common denominator is 20.

So, 1/1 + 1/20 can be calculated as follows:
(1 * 20)/(1 * 20) + 1/20 = 20/20 + 1/20 = 21/20.

Therefore, 1.05 can be expressed as the fraction 21/20.
