You can always convert a fraction to a decimal. The reverse may not always be possible. Look at the example on the screen capture.

You may be lucky and recover a fraction you have just converted into decimal format, but you cannot just write 0.333333333333 and expect the calculator to convert it to 1/3: The true fraction 1/3 has an infinite number of 3's after the decimal mark.

### What are rational numbers

Use the words: decimal part, not decimal fractin
Any number whose decimal part is periodic (has a recurring pattern that repeats indefinitely) is equivalent to a rational number, IS a rational number
0.345 345 345 ... =345/999=115/333
In the following screen captures, discard the last digit if it does not belong to a period. It is the effect of rounding up of the calculator

Period is 345

Period is 1

Period is 09

Period is 79

In general, if you have a decimal part of the form 0.d_1 d_2 d_3....d_n d_1 d_2 d_3 ...d_n ... where d_1 is the first digit of the period, d_2 is the 2nd digit of the period, ..., d_n is the n-th digit (and the last one) of the period, then the fraction representation of
0.d_1d_2...d_n d_1d_2... d_n ...=(d_1d_2...d_n)/(99...9) where the number of 9's in the denominator is equal to the number of digits in the period.
Once the fraction is found, one should reduce it to its simplest form.

### Is 0.08 less than 6%

Bot are numbers that are written in two different representations. To compare them safely you must convert them to the same representation.
0.08=8/100 or 8%
Now compare 8 % and 6%
Another way to do it is to convert 6% to its decimal representation then compare it to 0.08
6%=6/100=0.06
Since we have fractions let us just compare them. When comparing fractions, we first convert them to the same denominator (here it is 100). The greater one is the one with the greater numerator: 8 is greater than 6.
Conclusion: No, 0.08 is not less than 6%
