To convert a fraction to a percent, follow the steps below:

Step 1) Convert your fraction to a decimal by dividing the numerator by the denominator.

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

You have now changed your fraction to a percentage.

Examples

*
Example 1: Convert
3
5
into a percentage.
*

To convert the fraction to a decimal we divide the numerator by the denominator.

So we calculate 3 ÷ 5 = 0.6

Next multiply by 100 to change it to a percentage.

0.6 x 100 = 60

This means that:

*
3
5
= 3 ÷ 5 = 0.6 = 60%
*

*
Example 2: Convert
14
9
to a percentage.
*

First, we calculate 14 ÷ 9 = 1.556 (this decimal has been rounded to 3 decimal places)

Next multiply by 100 to change it to a percentage.

1.556 x 100 = 155.6

So we now have

*
14
9
= 14 ÷ 9 = 1.556 = 155.6% (to the nearest decimal place)
