$\frac{\mathbf{87}}{\mathbf{100}}$ is the rational form of $\mathbf{0}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{87}$ as a quotient of two integers.

See the step by step solution

Step 1. Given information

Consider, the number $0.3$ provided in question

Step 2. Calculation

To convert number $0.87$ as rational, it is needed to remove the decimal. Here $7$ is in at hundredth place

Therefore, the obtained fraction is

$⇒0.87=\frac{87}{100}$

Hence,

$\frac{87}{100}$ is the rational form of $0.87$ as a quotient of two integers.
