## How to Convert a Fraction to Percent

There are just two simple steps to convert a fraction to a 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.
