The number 4.28 can be expressed as 4 28/100.

Then we need to reduce the fraction by dividing top and bottom by 4 to get 7/25

So the final answer is:

4 7/25

1) 4.28 meters can be expressed as the sum of 4 meters and 0.28 meters.

**4+0.28**meters

2) As 1 meter is equal to 1oo centimeters, 0.28 meters will be equal to 28 centimeters. This can be

expressed as 28/100. therefore, 4.28 meters may be written as follows:

**4 + (28/100)**meters

3) Representing the same as a fraction, it will reduce to

**4 (28/100)**meters4) Simplifying the fraction within the brackets ( 28/100) further, it will reduce to

**( 7/25).**5) Thus 4.28 meters can be represented as a mixed number

**4 7/25**or**4 (7/25)**more clearly.Hope this helps....
