## How to Convert a Fraction to a Percent

You can convert a fraction to a percent value in 2 simple steps.

### Convert the Fraction to a Decimal Value

The first step is to convert the fraction into a decimal value. Do this by dividing the numerator by the denominator. For example, if your fraction is 3/4, take 3 ÷ 4 = 0.75. This is the decimal value. Also see our decimal equivalents chart for a list of decimal values for common fractions.

### Convert the Decimal Value to a Percentage

The second step is to convert the decimal value into a percentage. This can be done by multiplying the decimal value by 100. For example, if the decimal value is 0.75, take 0.75 × 100 = 75. The percentage is thus 75%.
