Numbers can typically be presented as either fractions or decimals. A decimal number refers to any number without a written denominator, while a fraction always has a numerator an denominator. To convert a decimal into a fraction, put the numbers to the right of the decimal place over a number that is equivalent to the number places occupied. For example, 0.99 can be written as 99/100 since it occupies the 10th and 100th number places.
