125 in Fraction Form

Many fractions in mathematics and elementary school can be coded as powers of two. For example, the fraction 9/30 is equivalent to the fraction 9/2^2. On this post, we will explore other interesting fractions.

Simple

0.125 is the same as 125/1000. This is because we have to remove the decimal point before creating a fraction. So 0.125 times by 1000 is 125 and at this point the decimal point has been removed. But 125/1000 is not the simplest form that the fraction could be in. If we divide both the top and the bottom by 5 since we know 125 is a multiple of 5, we get 25/200. Divide both by 5 again to get 5/40. Divide by 5 one more time to get 1/8, and since the numerator is 1, the fraction cannot be simplified any further. Therefore, the answer in its simplest form is 1/8.

is also called an irreducible fraction, in another words it could no longer be reduced or simplified, it is in its simplest form, the numbers 3 and 4, the numerator and the denominator of the fraction, are coprime numbers (prime to each other), not having any common factors other than 1.

Denominator

Divide the 125% to Fraction by dividing with 100 to get a decimal number. Place the decimal value on top as numerator over number length after decimal. Change the numerator and denominator to the whole number by counting the decimal places to the right of decimal and multiplying with powers of length after decimal of 10. Reduce the fraction further by dividing both numerator and denominator with GCF.
