  • Answer:

    The simplified fractional equivalent is [tex]\frac{1}{4}[/tex]

    Step-by-step explanation:

    we know that

    A terminating decimal is a decimal that ends. So, it's a decimal with a finite number of digits.

    we have

    [tex]0.25[/tex]

    Let

    [tex]x=0.25[/tex]

    Multiply by 100 both sides

    [tex]100x=25[/tex]

    Divide by 100 both sides

    [tex]x=\frac{25}{100}[/tex]

    Simplify

    Divide by 25 both numerator and denominator

    [tex]x=\frac{1}{4}[/tex]
