$0.03 = \frac{3}{100}$

#### Explanation:

A fraction such as $3.456$ can be written in fraction form as

$3 + \frac{4}{10} + \frac{5}{100} + \frac{6}{1000} = \frac{3456}{1000}$, as place value of $4$ is one-tenth, place value of $5$ is one-hundredth and place value of $6$ is one thousandth.

But in $0.03$, we have only $3$ in one-hundredth place, hence

$0.03 = 0 + \frac{0}{10} + \frac{3}{100} = \frac{3}{100}$
