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