Changing a Fraction to a Percentage

In order to change a fraction to a percentage, first divide the numerator by the denominator, then multiply by 100% (move the decimal two places to the right). For example, to convert 5/8 into a percentage, first divide 5 by 8, which is 0.625. Then multiply your answer by 100, or just move the decimal over two spaces, to get 62.5%.
