$\frac{36}{100}$, which simplifies to $\frac{9}{25}$

Explanation:

In the same way that $0.50 = \frac{50}{100}$ and $0.75 = \frac{75}{100}$,
$0.36 = \frac{36}{100}$, because it is $36$ hundredths, meaning $36$ parts out of $100$.

$\frac{36}{100}$ can be simplified, however:

$\frac{36}{100} = \frac{36 \div 4}{100 \div 4} = \frac{9}{25}$

Because $\frac{9}{25}$ cannot be simplified any further, this is the simplest form of the fraction.
