Elianna Long

$\frac{65}{4}$
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.
$16.25×\frac{100}{100}=\frac{1625}{100}$
Therefore, converting the obtained fraction in its lowest form by dividing numerator and denominator by their HCF.
$\therefore 16.25=\frac{1625}{100}=\frac{1625÷25}{100÷25}=\frac{65}{4}$
[HCF of 1625 and 100 is 25]
