IMPORTANT POINTS
Decimal Fraction : A fraction, whose denominator is 10 or a higher power of 10 e.g. 100, 1,000, 10,000 etc. is known as decimal fraction.
Number of Decimal Places: The number of digits in the decimal part of a number is the number of decimal places in it.
When the given number has only decimal part in it. It is always written 0 before it as 0.7, 0.55 are written as 0.7, 0.55.

Conversion of a Fraction into a Decimal Fraction :

1. When the denominator is 10,100,1000, 10,000 etc. : Counting from right to left of the numerator of the given fraction, mark the decimal point after as many digits as the number of zeroes in it denominator
1. When the denominator is not, 10, 100, 1000, 10,000 etc.
Multiply both, the numerator and denominator of the given fraction, by a suitable number to get the denominator 10 or a power of 10 and then proceed as above, e.g.
2. Conversion of a given Decimal Fraction into a Non-Decimal Fraction : Remove the decimal point and at the same time write 1 in the denominator, as many zeroes to the right of 1 as there are digits in the decimal part e.g.,

Zero or zeores written at the right of a decimal number does not change its value, e.g. 3.4 is the same as 3.40, 3.400, 3.4000 etc.
