# 0.501 as a Fraction

Here you can find 0.501 as a fraction, both as decimal fraction and in simplest form. We show you how to convert 0.501 to a fraction using the step by step instructions which can be found on our home page. There, you can also learn all about the others terms used in this article. If you have been looking for 0.501 in fraction form or 0.501 repeating as a fraction, then you are right here, too.

0.501 has 3 decimal places, so we put the decimal digits of 0.501, 501, over 1 followed by the number of zeroes equal to the number of decimal places, 3: 501 = 501/1000.

0.501 as decimal fraction = 501/1000

501 is the nominator and 1000 is the denominator. We now check if the decimal fraction is already in the lowest terms by finding the greatest common factor of 501 and 1000, know as gcf of 501 and 1000.

The gcf(501,1000) is 1, so we can conclude that 501/1000 already is 0.501 as a fraction in simplest form. We write 0.501 as a fraction in simplest form as 501/1000.

0.501 as a fraction in its lowest terms is 501/1000

## What is 0.501 as a Fraction

We have already answered what is 0.501 as a fraction above for the cases 0.501 as decimal fraction and 0.501 as a fraction in simplest form.

Yet, by multiplying the denominator and the nominator of 0.501 as a fraction in simplest form with all integers distinct from zero and one we can generate an infinite amount of fractions equivalent to 501/1000, but not in lowest terms:

501/1000 = $\frac{n\hspace{3px} x\hspace{3px} 501}{n\hspace{3px} x\hspace{3px} 1000}$ $\hspace{3px} n \hspace{3px}\epsilon\hspace{3px}\mathbb{Z},\hspace{3px} n\neq 0$.

For example, with n = 2 we obtain 1002/2000 and with n = -3 we get 1503/3000:
1002/2000 = 1503/3000 = 501/1000.

We can thus conclude that the question What is 0.501 as a fraction? does not have a single answer, but an indefinite amount of possibilities.

## 0.501 Repeating as a Fraction

To find out what is 0.501… as a fraction, identify the repeating sequence or pattern, known as reptend or repetend of 0.501 recurring.

The infinitely-repeated digit sequence of 0.501… can be indicated by three periods. For example, 0.50111… as a fraction (repeating 1, the last digit) = 451/900.

Alternatively, a vinculum, that is a horizontal line, can be drawn above the repetend of the fraction of 0.501. In addition, one can sometimes see the period enclosed in parentheses ().

Here, we use the overlined notation to denote 0.501 repeating as a fraction:

0.501 = 451/900
0.501 = 248/495
0.501 = 167/333
