Find out the price of the stock you want to buy.

Convert any fractions to decimal by dividing the bottom #, called the denominator, into the top #, or the numerator.

Multiply this buy the # of shares you want to buy. Let's call this # a.

Move that invisible point two spaces to the left. Fill in the blank spaces with zeros.

This will be .02.
