# Convert Fraction to PercentSupport Page

Welcome to our Convert Fraction to Percent support page.

Here you will find some simple information and support about how to convert a fraction to a percentage.

We also have a calculator which will not only do the work for you, but also show you all the working out along the way!

## Convert Fraction to Percent

### How It Works

To enter a fraction, you have to enter the numerator followed by '/' followed by the denominator. E.g. 4/5 or 23/7

To enter a mixed fraction, first type the whole number followed by space followed by the numerator followed by '/' followed by the denominator. E.g. 3 1/4 (3 and a quarter).

Press the Convert button and the fraction will be converted to a decimal and also a percentage.

### How to Convert Fractions to Percentages

There are two main ways to convert a fraction into a percent:

1. The Denominator Way - converting the fraction to an equivalent fraction with a denominator of 100
2. The Decimal Way - converting the fraction to a decimal and then converting the decimal to a percent

#### Method 1 - The Denominator Way

This way is a great way to use if the fraction has a denominator which is a factor of 100.

Here are the two quick steps you need to follow:

1. Divide 100 by the denominator to find the multiplier.
2. Multiply the numerator and denominator of the fraction by the multiplier to give you an equivalent fraction with a denominator of 100.

#### Method 2 - The Decimal Conversion Way

This method works well for any fraction, and it is the way our Fraction to Percentage calculator uses.

Step 1) Convert your fraction to a decimal by dividing the numerator by the denominator if you have a calculator this is easy, otherwise you need to use a dvision method.

Step 2) Multiply the decimal by 100 to change it into a percent.

You have now changed your fraction to a percentage. ### Convert Fraction to Percent Practice

The first two sheets get students to use the denominator method to create an equivalent fraction with a denominator of 100.

The third sheet uses the Decimal Conversion method to convert the fraction to a decimal then multiply by 100. Calculator recommended.
