Writing half, quarter, three-quarters and one and a quarter in decimal form

‘Half’ is usually written as $$\frac{1}{2}$$. To convert this fraction into decimal form, the denominator of $$\frac{1}{2}$$ must be converted into an equivalent fraction with denominator 10.

$$\frac{1}{2}=\frac{1 \times 5}{2 \times 5}=\frac{5}{10}$$ so the decimal form of $$\frac{1}{2}$$ will be $$\frac{5}{10}$$ or 0.5 Just as $$\frac{1}{2}=\frac{1 \times 5}{2 \times 5}=\frac{5}{10}$$ = 0.5, note that $$\frac{1}{2}=\frac{1 \times 50}{2 \times 50}=\frac{50}{100}$$ = 0.50

Therefore, ‘half’ is written as ‘0.5’ or 0.50’. ‘Quarter’ and ‘three quarters’ are written in fractions as $$\frac{1}{4}$$ and $$\frac{3}{4}$$ respectively. Let us convert them into decimal fractions. 10 is not divisible by 4. Therefore, the denominators of $$\frac{1}{4}$$ and $$\frac{3}{4}$$ cannot be made into fractions with multiples of 10. However, 4 × 25 = 100, so the denominator can be 100. A quarter $$=\frac{1}{4}=\frac{1 \times 25}{4 \times 25}=\frac{25}{100}=0.25$$
and Three quarters $$=\frac{3}{4}=\frac{3 \times 25}{4 \times 25}=\frac{75}{100}=0.75$$
One and a quarter = 1 $$\frac{1}{4}$$ = 1.25
One and a half = 1 $$\frac{1}{2}$$ = 1.50 = 1.5
One and three quarters = 1 $$\frac{3}{4}$$ = 1.75
Seventeen and a half = 17 $$\frac{1}{2}$$ = 17.50 = 17.5
