If I understand the question correctly, 48/100 reduces to 12/25.

What is 0.48 expressed as a fraction in simplest form? (just the 8 repeating)

 

Let y=0.4888888888.....

 

10y= 4.888888888...

    y=0.4888888888....

subtract

9y = 4.4

\(y=\frac{4.4}{9}=\frac{44}{90}=\frac{22}{45}\)

 

 

\(0.4\dot8=\frac{22}{45}\)

 

You need to check my working.   :)

Let's see Melody...

 

We have \(4.\overline{8}=10*.4\overline{8}\).

\(4.\overline{8}\) can be rewritten as \(4 \frac{8}{9}\), or \(\frac{44}{9}.\)

 

Then, we have \(\frac{44}{9}*\frac{1}{10}=\frac{22}{45}.\)

 

Yes, that is right...smiley
