$$a.bcdef...=\frac{a}{1}+\frac{b}{10}+\frac{c}{100}+\frac{d}{1000}+\frac{e}{10000}+\frac{f}{100000}...$$

example: $$1.34=1+\frac{3}{10}+\frac{4}{100}\\=\frac{100}{100}+\frac{3*10}{100}+\frac{4}{100}=\frac{100+30+4}{100}\\=\frac{134}{100}\\=\frac{67}{50}$$

0.37 means 37 hundredths since that 7 is in the hundredths place so you write 37 over 100 to get $\Large \frac{37}{100}$ this means $\Large \frac{37}{100} = 0.37$ I'll let you do the other one
