Answer:

#17/100#

Explanation:

If you multiply #0.17# by #100#, you get #17#.

#0.17xx100=17#

Similarly, if you divide #17# by #100#, you get #0.17#. Thus, the fraction form for #0.17# is #17/100#.

#17-:100=0.17=17/100#

Since there is no common factor which can divide the numerator, #17#, and the denominator, #100#, besides #1#, #17/100# is the final answer.
