# Convert Rational Numbers to a Fraction

To convert a rational number to a fraction, you have to write it in the format of $$\frac{a}{b}$$.
Both a and b are integers and they can be positive and negative but $$b≠0$$.
For instance; each one of these numbers $$\frac{2}{7}, -\frac{5}{11}, \frac{-8}{-4}$$, and $$\frac{-11}{-18}$$ is a rational number.

Convert Rational Numbers to a Fraction – Examples 2

Convert $$-0.22$$ to a fraction.
Solution:
Step 1:
$$-0.22$$ is $$-22$$ hundredths. Write down $$-22$$ as a numerator and 100 as a denominator. $$-0.22=-\frac{22}{100}$$
