# Converting percents and fractions review

Review writing percents as fractions and fractions as percents. Then, try some practice problems.

## Writing percents as fractions

Percent means 'per hundred.' So, we can replace a percent sign with 'per hundred.'

**Example**

Let's write 15, percent as a fraction.

## Writing fractions as percents

Percent means 'per hundred.' So, we want to create an equivalent fraction with 100 as the denominator.

**Example**

Let's write start fraction, 4, divided by, 5, end fraction as a percent.

The key here is to turn start fraction, 4, divided by, 5, end fraction to a fraction with a denominator of 100. To do this, we need to know what times 5 gives us 100:

Now we're ready to convert start fraction, 4, divided by, 5, end fraction to a percent:

- Can you have a decimal point for the dominator?(18 votes)
- Yes, it's possible to have a decimal in the denominator, but a fraction like this isn't fully simplified. To simplify, we move the decimal point the same number of places to the right in numerator and denominator to get rid of the decimals, then we reduce as usual from there.

For example, 2.4/0.18 is equivalent to 240/18, which then reduces to the improper fraction 40/3 or the mixed number 13 and 1/3.(2 votes)

- Hi Nina! This is quite simple once you understand it.

So basically lets say the percentage is 30%

Converting it to decimals would be 0.30, or 0.3 if you simplify it because as you should know the second digit wafter the decimal point is the hundreths place.

For fractions it would be 30/100, or 3/10 simplified because 30% of 100 would be 30 parts of 100!

- to find the simplest fraction you have to dive the numerator and denominator as much as you can until you cannot find a common factor(8 votes)
- Why didn't 175% not need a decimal before the 7 and after the 1.(7 votes)
- 7/4 is the same as 175/100 (4x25 = 100) & (7x25 = 175). As we know
**per cent**means**per hundred**. Since we converted 7/4 to hundredths, we simply need to remove the /100 and add the percent sign (%).

If you were to write it with the decimal point like this 1.75%, and then convert back to a fraction, the fraction would be 7/400.(2 votes)
