## Introduction

1.4 can be written as a fraction in a couple of different ways. The easiest way is to use a decimal to fraction converter, which will show that 1.4 is equal to 1/7. However, it is also possible to find 1.4 as a mixed number fraction. This means that 1.4 can be written as 1 4/7 or 14/7.

## What is 1.4 as a Fraction?

1.4 can be represented as a fraction in several ways. The most common way to represent 1.4 as a fraction is 1/4, which is read as “one fourth.” However, 1.4 can also be represented as 7/20, which is read as “seven twentieths.” Let’s look at how to represent 1.4 as a fraction in both of these ways.

## Decimals and Fractions

When we say a number is a “mixed number,” we mean it is a combination of a whole number and a fraction. For example, 1\frac{3}{4} is a mixed number because it is 1 whole plus 3 fourths. We can also have mixed decimals, like 2.75 which is 2 whole plus 7 tenths plus 5 hundredths.

## Converting 1.4 to a Fraction

When converting a decimal to a fraction, you place the decimal number over a power of ten equal to the number of decimal places in the decimal. In the fraction 1.4, there is one number to the right of the decimal point, so you would place the 1 over 10. The fraction would then be written as 14/10. To reduce the fraction, you find the greatest common factor between the numerator and denominator and divide both by that number. The greatest common factor between 14 and 10 is 2, so 14/10 reduces to 7/5.

## Conclusion

In conclusion, 1.4 can be written as a fraction in several ways:

1.4 can be written as 1 4/10 or 14/10.

1.4 can also be written as 7/5.
