There are several different methods for converting decimals into fractions  depending on whether or not the decimal number has digits to the left of the decimal point. I'll explain each scenario separately.
If there are no digits to the left of the decimal point, you can simply restate the decimal number as a fraction. This is done by placing the number to the right of the decimal point as the numerator, and the denominator becomes a 1 followed by the number of zeros equal to the number of digits in the numerator, like this:
.625  =  625 
1000 
625  =  625 ÷ 125  =  5 
1000  1000 ÷ 125  8 
If there are one or more digits to the left of the decimal point (value greater than zero), the easiest way to convert the decimal to a fraction is to simply put the decimal number over the number one, and multiply the top and bottom of the fraction by a number that will cause the numerator to become an integer, like this:
3.625 
1 
3.625 * 1000  =  3625 
1 * 1000  1000 
3625  =  3625 ÷ 125  =  28  =  3  5 
1000  1000 ÷ 125  8  8 
Note that the number you multiply the top and bottom by is always a 1 with the same number of zeros added as the number of top digits. So if the top has 2 digits you would multiply the top and bottom by 100. If the top has 4 digits you would multiply the top and bottom by 10000, and so on.
If there are one or more digits to the left of the decimal point and their value is greater than zero, then the decimal can be restated as a mixed number, and in turn, that mixed number can be converted to a fraction, like this:
3.625  =  3  625 
1000 
3  625  =  1000 * 3 + 625  =  3625 
1000  1000  1000 
3625  =  3625 ÷ 125  =  28  =  3  5 
1000  1000 ÷ 125  8  8 
With that, let's use the Decimal to Fraction Calculator for converting decimals into fractions and then simplifying the result.

Numerator: The value located in the top portion of a fraction.
Denominator: The value located in the bottom portion of a fraction.
Mixed number: The combination of a whole number and a fraction, such as 3 1/8. A mixed number can be converted into an improper fraction by multiplying the denominator by the whole number and adding the numerator to that product. That result then becomes the new numerator while the denominator remains the same. So 3 1/8 would convert to 25/8 (8 * 3 + 1 / 8).
Improper fraction: A fraction wherein the numerator is greater than the denominator, such as 25/8. An improper fraction can be converted to a mixed number. The whole number becomes the number of times the denominator goes into the numerator with the remainder becoming the new numerator. The denominator remains unchanged. So 25/8 would convert to the mixed number 3 1/8 (25 / 8 = 3 with a remainder of 1).
Nonrepeating decimal number: Enter the nonrepeating decimal number you would like to convert into a fraction.
Equivalent fraction: This is the fraction equivalent to the entered decimal number. Note that after clicking the Convert Decimal to Fraction button the decimal to fraction calculator will expand to display a detailed explanation of how it arrived at the result.
