• I need help with converting these kind of fractions into percentages: 13/15, 16/25, and so on.
• To convert a fraction to a percent, multiply by 100.
13/15 * 100/1 = 1300/15 = 86 10/15% = 86 2/3% or 86.666... with the 6 repeating. You would often be asked to round in this type of problem.

The same process works for your 2nd fraction.
Hope this helps.
• in this video i was not able to understand how did you come up with 3/5 instead of 6/10
• If you divide both sides of the fraction by two, then you will get a fraction that is equal to the original.
• how does a fraction help us with when you get older like what do we use it for
• Recipes
Equal slices of cake, bread, etc
Measurements of items (2/3 a gallon of paint, 1/4 a liter of water, etc)
• I need help with this are fractions the same thing as desimals
• No they are not. But they can represent the same number.
• At the mark (or so), I don't understand how 44/100 turns into 11/25.
Specifically, I don't understand the 100 being simplified into 25, visually. How does that work?
• they simplyfied it for you. they divided 44/100 by 4. hope this helps:)

• If you get a hint you don't do the problem by yourself
