**Q 1 - Convert the decimal 0.24 to a proper fraction in simplest form.**

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

We drop the decimal and write the number 24 as the numerator of a fraction.

**Step 2:**

The place value of the last digit 4, is hundredth. So, we write 100 as the denominator of the fraction to get $\frac{24}{100}$

**Step 3:**

To reduce the fraction to the simplest form, we divide the numerator and denominator of the fraction with the highest common factor of 24 and 100 which is $\frac{24\:\div\:4}{100\:\div\:4} = \frac{6}{25}$

**Step 4:**

So, $0.24 \frac{6}{25}$

**Q 2 - Convert the decimal 0.36 to a proper fraction in simplest form.**

### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

We drop the decimal and write the number 36 as the numerator of a fraction.

**Step 2:**

The place value of the last digit 6, is hundredth. So we write 100 as the denominator of the fraction to get $\frac{36}{100}$

**Step 3:**

To reduce the fraction to the simplest form, we divide the numerator and denominator of the fraction with the highest common factor of 36 and 100 which is 4 $\frac{36\:\div\:4}{100\:\div\:4} = \frac{9}{25}$

So, $0.36 = \frac{9}{25}$

**Q 3 - Convert the decimal 0.08 to a proper fraction in simplest form.**

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

We drop the decimal and write the number 08 or 8 as the numerator of a fraction. (08 and 8 are same.)

**Step 2:**

The place value of the last digit 8, is hundredth. So, we write 100 as the denominator of the fraction to get $\frac{8}{100}$

**Step 3:**

To reduce the fraction to the simplest form, we divide the numerator and denominator of the fraction with the highest common factor of 8 and 100 which is 4

$\frac{8\:\div\:4}{100\:\div\:4} = \frac{2}{25}$

**Step 4:**

So, $0.8 = \frac{2}{25}$

**Q 4 - Convert the decimal 0.46 to a proper fraction in simplest form.**

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

We drop the decimal and write the number 46 as the numerator of a fraction.

**Step 2:**

The place value of the last digit 6, is hundredth. So, we write 100 as the denominator of the fraction to get $\frac{46}{100}$

**Step 3:**

To reduce the fraction to the simplest form, we divide the numerator and denominator of the fraction with the highest common factor of 46 and 100 which is 2

$\frac{46\:\div\:2}{100\:\div\:2} = \frac{23}{50}$

**Step 4:**

So, $0.46 = \frac{23}{50}$

**Q 5 - Convert the decimal 0.52 to a proper fraction in simplest form.**

### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

We drop the decimal and write the number 52 as the numerator of a fraction.

**Step 2:**

The place value of the last digit 2, is hundredth. So, we write 100 as the denominator of the fraction to get $\frac{52}{100}$

**Step 3:**

To reduce the fraction to the simplest form, we divide the numerator and denominator of the fraction with the highest common factor of 52 and 100 which is 4 $\frac{52\:\div\:4}{100\:\div\:4} = \frac{13}{25}$

**Step 4:**

So, $0.52 = \frac{13}{25}$

**Q 6 - Convert the decimal 0.64 to a proper fraction in simplest form.**

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

We drop the decimal and write the number 64 as the numerator of a fraction.

**Step 2:**

The place value of the last digit 4, is hundredth. So, we write 100 as the denominator of the fraction to get $\frac{64}{100}$

**Step 3:**

To reduce the fraction to the simplest form, we divide the numerator and denominator of the fraction with the highest common factor of 64 and 100 which is 4 $\frac{64\:\div\:4}{100\:\div\:4} = \frac{16}{25}$

So, $0.64 = \frac{16}{25}$

**Q 7 - Convert the decimal 0 .68 to a proper fraction in simplest form.**

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

We drop the decimal and write the number 68 as the numerator of a fraction.

**Step 2:**

The place value of the last digit 8, is hundredth. So, we write 100 as the denominator of the fraction to get $\frac{68}{100}$

**Step 3:**

To reduce the fraction to the simplest form, we divide the numerator and denominator of the fraction with the highest common factor of 68 and 100 which is 4 $\frac{64\:\div\:4}{100\:\div\:4} = \frac{17}{25}$

So, $0.68 = \frac{17}{25}$
