Write 0.4% as a fraction in simplest form.

Write 0.4% as a fraction in simplest form.

Wouldn't 0.4% as a fraction be 1/250 because:

0.4/100= 2/5/100

2/5/100= 1/250

I'm not sure but I hope this helped

0.4

4/10

dividing by 2 both numerator and denominator we get

2/5

4/10 but in simplest form it becomes 2/5.

To find the decimal form of a percentage, you divide by 100. If you have a decimal, then to divide by 100 just move the decimal 2 places to the left.

0.4% = .004

Now to turn it into a fraction, just read the place value...

four one thousandths = 4/1000

Now reduce... 4/1000 = 2/500 = 1/250

The simplest form of 0.4% as a fraction is... 1/250

Using the place value chart, we can see that the decimal 0.4 is four tenths, so we can write 0.4 as the fraction [tex]\frac{4}{10}[/tex]. Notice however that the fraction is not in lowest terms. We will need to divide the numerator and the denominator by the greatest common factor of 4 and 10 which is 2. Therefore, 0.4 can be written as the fraction [tex]\frac{2}{5}[/tex], which is in lowest terms.
