Lesson Progress
0% Complete

Remember that 23% means 23/100. Thus 23% is the same as 0.23. 

To convert a fraction to a percent, first divide the numerator by the denominator.  Then multiply the decimal by 100. 

e.g. the fraction 4/5 = 0.8 

0.8 x 100 = 80 

Therefore, the fraction 4/5 is equivalent to 80% 

Example 1

Write 2/25 as a percent 

Solution 

2/25  =  2 ÷ 25 = 0.08 

= 0.08 x 100 = 8 

Therefore, the fraction 2/25  is equivalent to 8%

Example 2

Write 7/4 as a percent 

Solution 

7/4 = 7 ÷ 4 = 1.75 

1.75 x 100 = 175

Therefore, the fraction 7/4 is equivalent to 175%
