If you’re like most people, you probably think of 1.1 as a whole number. But in fact, it’s a fraction! Here’s a quick explanation of what 1.1 as a fraction means.

When you see the decimal 1.1, it is easy to convert it to a fraction. The number to the right of the decimal point is the numerator, and the number to the left of the decimal point is the denominator. In this case, 1.1 would be written as 11/10.
What is 1.1 as a Fraction?
1.1 can be written as a fraction in a couple different ways. The first way is by using the fact that 1.1 is equal to 11/10. So, 1.1 as a fraction would be equal to 11/10. Another way to write 1.1 as a fraction is by using the fact that 1.1 is equal to 6/5. So, 1.1 as a fraction would be equal to 6/5.
Decimals and Fractions
Decimals and fractions represent different ways of expressing numbers. A decimal is a number that contains a decimal point, which separates the whole number part from the fractional part. A fraction is a number that represents a part of a whole. The fractional part is always written as a numerator (top number) over a denominator (bottom number).
Converting fractions to decimals and vice versa is a skill that you need to be able to do in order to work with numbers. In this lesson, we’ll show you how to convert 1.1 from a decimal to a fraction.
To convert 1.1 from a decimal to a fraction, we need to understand what the decimal point means. The decimal point separates the whole number part from the fractional part of a number. In 1.1, the “1” before the decimal point is the whole number part, and the “1” after the decimal point is the fractional part.
The way we convert 1.1 from a decimal to a fraction is by understanding what each digit in 1.1 represents as far as fractions go. In other words, we need to understand what place value each digit has in 1.1 in order for us to convert it properly into a fraction. The breakdown of place value for 1.1 looks like this:
The first digit after the decimal point (in this case, “1”) represents tenths or 1/10 . So “1” in 1.1 = 1/10 .
The second digit after the decimal point (in this case, also “1”) represents hundredths or 1/100 . So “1” in .11 = 1/100 .
Converting 1.1 to a Fraction
Multiply whole number by 10 # .1 x 10 = 1
Add the two numbers together # 1 + 1 = 2
The new number is your numerator (top number) # 2
Leave the decimal point where it is and put a line over the numbers to make a fraction # 2/10
Reduce if possible or leave in simplest form # 1/5
In conclusion, we have seen that 1.1 can be represented as a fraction in several ways. We can express 1.1 as 11/10, or as a mixed number as 1 1/10. We have also seen that when we convert 1.1 to a decimal, we get the same value as when we convert 1/10 to a decimal.
