**Hint:**According to the given question, we have to write $0.48$ as a fraction in the lowest term.

So, first of all we have to remove the decimal from the given number as $0.48$ and write that number into the fraction from which is as $\dfrac{a}{b}$, where a and b both are natural numbers.

Now, solve the fraction form into the simplest form by dividing the common factor that is lying in both numerator and denominator.

**Complete step by step answer:**

First of all we have to remove the decimal from the given number as$0.48$and write that number into the fraction as$\dfrac{a}{b}$and all the information about the fraction given in the solution hint.

$

\Rightarrow 0.48 \\

\Rightarrow \dfrac{{48}}{{100}} \\

$

Now, we have to break the number of both numerator and denominator into their simplest form as mentioned below.

$ \Rightarrow \dfrac{{4 \times 12}}{{4 \times 25}}$

Now, we have to solve that fraction as obtained in the solution step 2 by dividing the common factor that is 4 in both numerator and denominator of the fraction as obtained in the solution step 2.

$ \Rightarrow \dfrac{{12}}{{25}}$

**Additional information:**

Fraction: A fraction is used to represent the portion/part of the whole thing. It represents the equal parts of the whole. A fraction has two parts, namely numerator and denominator. The number on the top is called numerator and the number on the bottom is called denominator. The numerator defines the number of equal parts taken, whereas the denominator defines the total number of equal parts in a whole.

**Note:**

It is necessary to remove the decimal from the given number as$0.48$and write that number into the fraction from as$\dfrac{a}{b}$.

It is necessary to break the number of both numerator and denominator into their simplest form as mentioned in the solution step.
