# Number to fractional number

Hi all

I have one number. I want to convert that it to fractional

For ex: I have a=0.02 so if I convert that number into fraction then it will be 1:50

So I dont want to express it in fractional feet and inches I want express it in SI fractional unit. Please let me know how to convert a number into fraction (SI fraction i.e 1:ratio) like explained above.

@shashank.baganeACM I do not think you can get it other than a string, maybe someone else can prove me wrong:

Looks like thereâ€™s a module for converting decimals to a numerator and denominator, but otherwise I believe @Elie.Trad is correct. Thereâ€™s no fractional number type so the best you can do is a string. This also allows you to round to a fractional precision if the decimal is irrational or otherwise results in an â€śawkwardâ€ť fraction.
