How do you write 1.5 as a fraction?

Jan 6, 2017

$1.5$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} = 1 \frac{1}{2}$ (as a reduced mixed fraction)
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} = \frac{3}{2}$ (as a reduced improper fraction)
$1.5 = \frac{1.5}{1.0} = \frac{15}{10} = \frac{{\cancel{15}}^{3}}{{\cancel{10}}_{2}} = \frac{3}{2} = 1 + \frac{1}{2}$
