How to Convert a Fraction to Percent
Step One: Convert the Fraction to a Decimal Value
The first step is to convert the fraction to a decimal value. This is as easy as dividing the numerator by the denominator.
As a refresher, the numerator is the number above the fraction bar, and the denominator is the number below the fraction bar.
decimal = numerator ÷ denominator
For example, convert the fraction 3 / 4 to a decimal.
3 / 4 = 3 ÷ 4
3 / 4 = 0.75
Thus, the decimal value of 3 / 4 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 decimal without using division.

Step Two: Convert the Decimal Value to a Percentage
The second step is to convert the number from a decimal to a percentage. To convert it to a percent, multiply the decimal by 100, then place a percent sign (%) after it.
For example, let’s convert 0.75 to a percentage.
percentage = 0.75 × 100 = 75%
The percentage value of 3 / 4 or 0.75 is thus 75%.
Putting this all together, you can convert to a percentage by solving the fraction, multiplying that by 100, then adding a percent sign (%) to the result.
