#### Explanation:

In order to convert from decimal to fraction, you have to look at the number of digits after the point. In this decimal, there are 2 digits after the point. Then all number (without the point) is divided by 100 (because there are 2 zeros at 100) If there is 1 digit after the point, the number is divided by 10. If there are 3 digits after the point, the number is divided by 1000. It means the number of zeros depends on the number of digits after the point.
