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.

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

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