# How to convert a decimal value or a vector of decimal values to fractional form in R?

A fraction form of a decimal value is the form of the value represented with division sign. For example, representing 0.5 as 1 / 2. In R, we can use fractions function of MASS package to convert a decimal value or a vector of decimal values to fractional form. To do so, we just need to pass the value in fractions function as fractions(“Decimal_value or Vector_Of_Decimal_Values”).

## Examples

> library(MASS)

## Output
