# What is 2.23 written as a mixed number in simplest form

2.23 = $2 \frac{23}{100}$ This is how I got it: 1.Rewrite the decimal number as a fraction with 1 in the denominator 2.23  = $\frac{2.23}{1}$ Multiplying by 1 to eliminate 2 decimal places, we multiply top and bottom by $10^{2}$ = 100 $\frac{2.23}{1} * \frac{100}{100} = \frac{223}{100}$ $2 \frac{23}{100}$ So, 2.23 = $2 \frac{23}{100}$ Hope it helped you today :)
