Convert Decimal or Percent To Fraction
Sometimes we may want to express a decimal or percentage in the form of a fraction.
For example, 0.28 (or 28%) has an exact fraction equivalent of 7/25.
Unfortunately, all decimals or percentages can't be represented as a fraction in a meaningful and usable form.
For example, the simple representation of decimal 0.23699 as a fraction is 23,699/100,000. This is exact but not very meaningful if we were thinking in terms of a denominator around which we could wrap our minds.
Thus, we can express the decimal or percentage in terms of a specific denominator and the percentage difference between the two results, if there is a difference.
