**Show that the number is rational by writing it as a quotient of two integer. **

**0.87**

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

Consider, the number $0.3$ provided in question** **

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

$\Rightarrow 0.87=\frac{87}{100}$

Hence,

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