## Converting Rational Numbers to Fractions

Rational number is any number that can be expressed as a simple fraction or the ratio of two integer. Suppose, s and t are two integers and t is not equal to zero. The set of rational number is countable. The most thing of rational number are those number is a repeating decimal numbers. We take some example of rational number: 1/2, 1/11, 1/3 Now, we discuss on converting of rational number into fraction:- we know that every fraction is called rational number. And every fraction is a repeating decimal. Fraction is starting with 0. Suppose, we have a repeating decimal. And we can see that the repeating decimal in this form. (b) (b) (b) in this repeating form. (b) is some sequence of repeating digit. Technically, we can say that (b) is called the repeated. We take more example of converting rational number into fraction are:- for 1/9= 0.111111111&&&&&&.. is repented is 1 1/11= 0.09090909&&&&&&&. s repented is 09. Now, we can say that every Rational Number can easily be converted into fractions.

What is a Rational Number? The Rational numbers are those numbers which can either be whole numbers or fractions or decimals. Rational numbers can be written as a ratio of two integers in the form 'p/q' where 'p' and 'q' are integers and 'q' is nonzero. A rational number is simply a ratio of two integers, for example1/5 is a rational number (1 divided by 5, or the ratio of 1 to 5). Introduction to Rational numbers Today, I will tell you a story. Once there was a family of Natural numbers where all counting numbers used to live. One day a guest named zero visited the house and requested for a permission to stay there. All were happy; they requested the eldest member of the family Mr. infinite () to grant the permission for 0. Definition of Rational Number In mathematics, Rational Numbers can be defined as a ratio of two integers. Rational numbers can be expressed in form of fraction 'a/b' in which 'a' and 'b' are integers where denominator 'b' not equal to zero. We also have set of rational number and 'Q' is used to represent it. Positive Rational Numbers Positive rational numbers can be expressed as the ratio 'p/q' where, 'p' and 'q' are both positive integers. Any positive rational number can be expressed as a sum of distinct reciprocals of positive integers like: 3/5 = 1/3+2/6+1/18. A positive rational number has infinitely many different such representations called Egyptian.

Negative Rational Numbers The numbers which are written in form of a/b where a and b are integers such that b0 all comes in the family of Rational Numbers. Positive Rational Numbers are those which have both numerators and denominators as positive or negative. Example: 5/7, 6/5 or (-3/-4) are positive rational numbers. Properties of Rational Numbers The rational numbers are closed under addition, subtraction, multiplication and division by nonzero rational numbers. The properties are called closure properties of rational numbers. Operations on Rational Numbers In mathematics, we generally deal with four types of basic operations called as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. We can easily perform these four kinds of operations on different type of Rational Numbers. Rational Numbers on a Number Line A number line is graphical representation of numbers from negative infinity to positive infinity in a single line. Rational numbers can be expressed in fraction (a/b) form, where 'b' is not equation.
