How to Convert a Percent to a Fraction
There are a few ways to convert a percentage to fraction form. One way is to use a calculator like the one above. Follow along to learn two more methods.
Method One: Convert to a Decimal and Then to a Fraction
One way to convert a percent value to a fraction is to first convert the percentage to decimal form and then convert the decimal value to a fraction.
To convert to a decimal, divide the percent value by 100. You should also remove the percent symbol from the decimal number.
To complete the conversion, change the decimal number into a fraction. To do this, place the decimal number as the top number of the fraction over 1.
If the decimal is not a whole number then multiply the top and bottom of the fraction by 10 until the top number is a whole number.
You can optionally reduce the fraction if desired.
For example, convert 25% to a fraction using this method.
Convert to decimal form.
25% = 25 ÷ 100
25% = .25
Convert to fraction form.
.25 = .251
.25 = (.25 × 10)(1 × 10)
.25 = (2.5 × 10)(10 × 10)
.25 = 25100
Thus, the fraction value of 25% is 25100
Method Two: Put the Percentage in a Fraction Over 100
Another method to convert a percent to a fraction is to put the percentage directly into a fraction as the top number over 100. Be sure to remove the percent symbol.
Note that if the top number of the fraction isn’t a whole number you can multiply the top and bottom numbers by 10 until the top number is a whole number.
For example, convert 25% to a fraction by putting it in a fraction over 100.
25% = 25100
This method requires a few less steps than the first method.
