 Question from Edward, a student: How to write these numbers in form of a/b: -7, 0.175, -3.25, 37/10, -16, 1/3, 2.04

Hi Edward,

Let me illustrate with $-4.75.$ $4.75 = \large \frac{475}{100}$ so

$-4.75 = -\frac{475}{100} = \frac{-19}{4}.$

Try the others and write back if you need more assistance,
Penny
