The important fact to remember when dealing with percentages is that percent means 'out of 100'. To convert a percentage to a fraction, follow the steps below:

Step 1) Change your percentage to a fraction by putting the percentage number over a denominator of 100.

Step 2) Change it to simplest form if required.

You have now changed your percentage to a fraction.

Examples

Example 1: Convert 35% into a fraction.

To convert the percentage to a fraction we put the percentage number over a denominator of 100.

So we have

35% = 35 100

Next we need to change the fraction to simplest form. In this case, by dividing the numerator and denominator by 5.

35 ÷ 5 = 7; 100 ÷ 5 = 20.

*
So 35% =
35
100
=
7
20

Example 2: Convert 132% to a fraction.

To convert the percentage to a fraction we put the percentage number over a denominator of 100.

So we have

132% = 132 100

Next we need to change the fraction to simplest form. In this case, we can divide the numerator and denominator by 4.

132 ÷ 4 = 33; 100 ÷ 4 = 25.

*
So 132% =
132
100
=
33
