    I know that 45/100 = 0.45. However I need 45 repeats forever

    Convert Decimals to Fractions (Multiply top and bottom by 10 until you get a whole number, then simplify) To convert a Decimal to a Fraction follow these steps: Step 1: Write down the decimal divided by 1, like this: decimal/1 Step 2: Multiply both top and bottom by 10 for every number after the decimal point. (For example, if there are two numbers after the decimal point, then use 100, if there are three then use 1000, etc.) Step 3: Simplify (or reduce) the fraction

    that would mean its an irrational number. irrational numbers cannot be expressed in p/q form, where p and q are integers
