**Q 1 - Convert the decimal 0.265 to a proper fraction in simplest form.**

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

We drop the decimal and write the number 265 as the top of a fraction.

**Step 2:**

The place value of the last digit 5, is a thousandth. So, we take 1000 as the bottom of the fraction to get $0.265 = \frac{265}{1000}$

**Step 3:**

To reduce the fraction to the simplest form, we divide the top and bottom of the fraction with the highest common factor of 265 and 1000 which is 5

$\frac{(265 \div 5)}{(1000 \div 5)} = \frac{53}{200}$

**Step 4:**

So, $0.265 = \frac{53}{200}$

**Q 2 - Convert the decimal 0.272 to a proper fraction in simplest form.**

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

We drop the decimal and write the number 272 as the top of a fraction.

**Step 2:**

The place value of the last digit 2, is a thousandth. So, we take 1000 as the bottom of the fraction to get $0.272 = \frac{272}{1000}$

**Step 3:**

To reduce the fraction to the simplest form, we divide the top and bottom of the fraction with the highest common factor of 272 and 1000 which is 8

$\frac{272 \div 8}{1000 \div 8} = \frac{34}{125}$

**Step 4:**

So, $0.272 = \frac{34}{125}$

**Q 3 - Convert the decimal 0.288 to a proper fraction in simplest form.**

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

We drop the decimal and write the number 288 as the top of a fraction.

**Step 2:**

The place value of the last digit 8, is a thousandth. So, we take 1000 as the bottom of the fraction to get $0.288 = \frac{288}{1000}$

**Step 3:**

To reduce the fraction to the simplest form, we divide the top and bottom of the fraction with the highest common factor of 288 and 1000 which is 8

$\frac{(288 \div 8)}{1000 \div 8} = \frac{36}{125}$

**Step 4:**

So, $0.288 = \frac{36}{125}$

**Q 4 - Convert the decimal 0.316 to a proper fraction in simplest form.**

### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

We drop the decimal and write the number 316 as the top of a fraction.

**Step 2:**

The place value of the last digit 6, is a thousandth. So, we take 1000 as the bottom of the fraction to get $0.316 = \frac{316}{1000}$

**Step 3:**

To reduce the fraction to the simplest form, we divide the top and bottom of the fraction with the highest common factor of 316 and 1000 which is 4

$\frac{316 \div 4}{1000 \div 4} = \frac{79}{250}$

**Step 4:**

**Q 5 - Convert the decimal 0.354 to a proper fraction in simplest form.**

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

We drop the decimal and write the number 354 as the top of a fraction.

**Step 2:**

The place value of the last digit 4, is a thousandth. So, we take 1000 as the bottom of the fraction to get $0.354 = \frac{354}{1000}$

**Step 3:**

To reduce the fraction to the simplest form, we divide the top and bottom of the fraction with the highest common factor of 354 and 1000 which is 2

$\frac{354 \div 2}{1000 \div 2} = \frac{177}{500}$

**Step 4:**

So, $0.354 = \frac{177}{500}$

**Q 6 - Convert the decimal 0.384 to a proper fraction in simplest form.**

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

We drop the decimal and write the number 384 as the top of a fraction.

**Step 2:**

The place value of the last digit 4, is a thousandth. So, we take 1000 as the bottom of the fraction to get $0.384 = \frac{384}{1000}$

**Step 3:**

To reduce the fraction to the simplest form, we divide the top and bottom of the fraction with the highest common factor of 384 and 1000 which is 8

$\frac{384 \div 8}{1000 \div 8} = \frac{48}{125}$

**Step 4:**

So, $0.384 = \frac{48}{125}$

**Q 7 - Convert the decimal 0.428 to a proper fraction in simplest form.**

### Answer : A

### Explanation
