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%
