$\frac{65}{4}$

To convert a decimal to a fraction, do the following:

(i) Count the number of digits after the decimal(say "n").

(ii) Multiply and divide the number by one, then divide it by n zeros, where n is the number of digits after the decimal.

There are two digits after the decimal place in 16.25. As a result, we multiply and divide it by 100.

$16.25\times \frac{100}{100}=\frac{1625}{100}$

Therefore, converting the obtained fraction in its lowest form by dividing numerator and denominator by their HCF.

$\therefore 16.25=\frac{1625}{100}=\frac{1625\xf725}{100\xf725}=\frac{65}{4}$

[HCF of 1625 and 100 is 25]
