- 48.96
- -48.96
- 50
- 48

Hint:

### Simply convert decimals into fractions or directly multiply.

## The correct answer is: -48.96

### STEP BY STEP SOLUTION

.

1)Write the given decimal as a fraction by adding the number one to the denominator. The given value of the numerator and denominator is to be multiplied by multiples of 10 to remove the decimal(.) value. If 1.8, for example, is a decimal value, 18/10 will be the corresponding fraction. We cannot simply carry on with 18/10. 2)The specified decimal should first be written as a ratio (p/q), with one as the denominator.

3)The numerator and denominator are to be multiplied by multiples of 10 to convert the decimal into a whole number, multiplied for each decimal point. (Multiply by 100/100 if two numbers follow the decimal point)

4) just the outcome fraction
