Calculate 0.02 as a fraction

To convert 0.02 into a fraction, here are the steps.

Any number can be written as a fraction by using 1 as the denominator. So, we converted 0.375 into a fraction with a denominator of 1.

0.02 =
0.02/1

Then, we removed the decimal part from the numerator to make it a whole number. Since 0.375 has 2 digits after the decimal point, we need to multiply both the numerator and the denominator by 100.

0.02 × 100/1 × 100
=
2/100

The next step is to make this fraction simpler because the biggest common factor (BCF) of 2 and 100 is 2. So, to simplify the fraction, we have to divide both the top and bottom numbers by 2.

2 ÷ 2/100 ÷ 2
=
1/50

That's it! The simplest form of 0.02 as a fraction is 1/50.
