### Relationship Between Decimals and Fractions:

Relationship Between Decimals and Fractions Both represent a part of a whole A fraction is based on the number into which the whole is divided(the denominator).  The numerator (the top) is the PART, the denominator (the bottom) is the WHOLE. A decimal is based on the number in terms of tenths, hundredths, thousandths, etc. www.biotecnika.org
