## 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: Put the Percentage in a Fraction Over 100

The most common 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.

The final step is to simplify the fraction by reducing. This step is only required if the fraction is not already in the simplest form.

**For example,** convert 25% to a fraction by putting it in a fraction over 100.

25% = 25 / 100

Then simplify

25 / 100 = 1 / 4

Thus, the fraction value of 25% is 1 / 4

### Method Two: Convert to a Decimal and Then to a Fraction

One way to convert a percent value to a fraction is to 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.

Then simplify the fraction to get the final solution.

**For example,** convert 25% to a fraction using this method.

Convert to decimal form.

25% = 25 ÷ 100

25% = .25

Convert to fraction form.

.25 = .25 / 1

.25 = (.25 × 10) / (1 × 10)

.25 = (2.5 × 10) / (10 × 10)

.25 = 25 / 100

Then simplify

25 / 100 = 1 / 4
