## How to Convert a Percent to Fraction?

Follow the below-listed guidelines to change between Percentage to Fraction instantaneously. They are in the following fashion

- Firstly obtain the given percentage and divide it by 100.
- Use the number obtained as the numerator of the fraction and place 1 in the denominator of the fraction.
- If the resultant obtained is a decimal value change it to a whole number. Count the number of places to the right of the decimal and multiply both numerator and denominator with 10
^{x}. - Reduce the Fraction to its Lowest Form by dividing both the numerator and denominator with their GCF.
- Simplify the fraction obtained to a mixed number if required.

### Solved Examples on Percent to Fraction Conversion

1. Express the following percentage into Fraction and reduce the fraction to its lowest terms?

(i) 14 % (ii) 125% (iii) 2%

**Solution:**

(i) 14 % = 14/100 = 7/50

(ii) 125% = 125/100 = 5/4

(iii) 2% = 2/100 = 1/50

2. Convert the following percentages to Fraction and reduce to the lowest forms?

(i) 62.5%

**Solution:**

62.5% = 62.5/100 = 0.625 = 0.625/1

Since the obtained value is a decimal check the number of decimal values to the right and multiply with the 10 raised to that power to make it a whole number.

In 0.625 no. of decimal places = 3

multiply both the numerator and denominator with 10^{3}

0.625/1 = (0.625*10^{3})/(1*10^{3})

= 625/1000

Reduce the obtained fraction to the lowest form by simply dividing both the numerator and denominator with the GCF.

625/1000 = (625÷125)/(1000÷125) = 5/8

3. Convert the following percentages to fraction and reduce to the lowest form?

(i) 25 % (ii) 52 % (iii) 40%

**Solution:**

(i) 25 % = 25/100 = 5/20

(ii) 52 % = 52/100 = 26/50

(iii) 40% = 40/100 = 4/10 = 2/5

4. Convert 13% to Fraction?

**Solution:**

Firstly place the percentage value over 100

= 13/100

Since the numerator is a whole number you can proceed further.

As the fraction can’t be reduced further and has no common divisors that itself is the required fraction value.

5. Convert 12.5% to fraction?

**Solution:**

Given Percentage = 12.5%

Firstly place the percentage value over 100 i.e. 12.5/100 = 0.125

Place the value obtained as a numerator with a denominator 1 in the fraction i.e. 0.125/1

Since the numerator is a decimal value change it to a whole number.

No. of decimal places to the right of decimal value is 3. Multiply both the numerator and denominator with 10^{3}

= (0.125*10^{3})/(1*10^{3})

= 125/1000

Reduce the obtained fraction to the lowest form by simply dividing both the numerator and denominator with the GCF.

= (125÷125)/(1000÷125)

= 1/8
