Fraction to percentage method

The method to change a fraction to a percent is as follows:

  1. Divide the numerator by denominator.
  2. Take the result and multiply by 100.
  3. The result is the fraction as a percent.

The percentage calculator is also handy for this type of problem.

Fraction to percentage formula

"Well thats all well and good, Mr Word Problem", we hear you say, "but what about the fraction to percent formula? Don't you think that would be a bit more useful?" Well, since you feel so strongly about the topic, here it is for you:

n/d * 100 = p

where, n is the numerator, d is the denominator, and p is the percentage (as a percentage!).

In most cases when working with fractions, we want to simplify the fraction. When using the convert fraction to percent calculator, simplification is not necessary.
