Answer: 0.875 is a fraction expressed as 7/8

We will use 0.875 to express the fraction.


We can convert a decimal number to a fraction by writing the given number as the numerator, and then placing 1 in the denominator just below the decimal point. Then we add the required number of zeros accordingly. This fraction can then be simplified.

In this example, 0.875 contains three numbers after the decimal. We therefore place 1000 in our denominator, and we remove the decimal point.

= 875/1000

We get this fraction after reducing it.

= (875 / 125) / (1000 / 125) = 7/8
