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) meters
 
4)  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....
