Converting Percent to Fraction

Percentages can be thought of as fractions that are based on a whole of 100; that is, one whole is equal to 100%. The word percent means “per hundred.” Fractions can be expressed as percents by finding equivalent fractions with a denomination of 100. Example: 7/10=70/100=70%; 1/4=25/100=25%. To express a percentage as a fraction, divide the percentage number by 100 and reduce the fraction to its simplest possible terms. Example: 60%= 60/100=3/5; 96%= 96/100=24/25.
