## Introduction

Today, we tackled 2.4. Can we make it a fraction? Let's find out.

## Identifying the Decimal Place

Step one is easy. Just spot the '4' in 2.4. It's in the tenths place. Simple, isn't it?

### Writing as a Fraction

In step two, we frame 2.4 as 24/10. The whole number '2' moves to the tens place, making it '24'. The decimal gets shifted.

### Identifying the Whole Number

Here comes a twist. The '24' in 24/10 is more than 10. So, we have an entire number part '2' and the fraction part '4/10'.

### Simplifying the Fraction

Step four, the core step. Reduce the fraction 4/10 to its simplest form, which is 2/5.

### Presenting the Final Fraction

The final step is exciting. Combine the entire number '2' with the simplified fraction '2/5' to get 2 2/5. And there you have it, 2.4 as a mixed fraction.

### Conclusion

So, we found that 2.4 is 2 2/5 as a fraction. Cool, right? Remember these steps, and you can convert any decimal into a fraction.
