## How to Convert a Fraction to a Percent

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

### Step One: 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. The numerator is the number on top of the fraction bar and the denominator is the number below the fraction bar.

decimal = numerator ÷ denominator

**For example,** convert the fraction 34 to a decimal.

34 = 3 ÷ 4

34 = 0.75

Thus, the decimal value of 34 is **0.75**.

Here’s a tip: you might be able to use a decimal equivalents chart for a list of decimal values for common fractions to convert a fraction to a decimal without using division.

### Step Two: 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, then placing a percent sign (%) after the value.

**For example,** let’s convert 0.75 to a percentage.

percentage = 0.75 × 100 = 75%

The percentage value of 34 or 0.75 is thus **75%**.
