We have already answered the question for the cases decimal fraction and in simplest form.
3.238 has 3 decimal places, so we put the decimal digits of 3.238, 238, over 1 followed by the number of zeroes equal to the number of decimal places, 3: 238 = 238/1000. We add 3 as 3000/1000 and get:
3238 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 3238 and 1000, know as gcf of 3238 and 1000.
The gcf(3238,1000) is 2, so we can conclude that 3238/1000 is not 3.238 as a fraction in simplest form. To obtain 3.238 as a fraction in simplest form we have to divide both, the nominator as well as denominator, by the gcf(3238,1000):
We write it as 1619/500.

What is 3.238 as a Fraction?We have already answered the question for the cases decimal fraction and in simplest form.
Yet, by multiplying the denominator and the nominator of 3.238 as a fraction in simplest form with all integers distinct from zero and one we can generate an infinite amount of fractions equivalent to 1619/500, but not in lowest terms:
For example, with n = 2 we obtain 3238/1000 and with n = -3 we get 4857/1500:
3238/1000 = 4857/1500 = 1619/500.
We can thus conclude that the question under consideration does not have a single answer, but an indefinite amount of possibilities.
3.238 Repeating as a FractionTo find out what is 3.238… as a fraction, identify the repeating sequence or pattern, known as reptend or repetend of 3.238 recurring.
