Changing Percents to Fractions in Simplest Forms


This topic is one of the easiest topics of all because converting percents to fractions is like counting from 1 to 10! And putting them in simplest form is even easier.

So let's take 53% and lets make it into a fraction and to do that you have to put a 100 as the denominator since 54 is a whole number:

54% =  54 

Now to put this in simplest form you have to divide both numbers starting from 2 and so on like this:

 54  /2= 27
100 /2= 50

So now we know that the simplest fraction form of the percent 54% is 27/50.
Now try some of these and make sure to watch the video on YouTube.
