Fraction into Percentage

How to covert a fraction into percentage?

We will follow the following steps for converting a fraction into a percentage:

Step I: Obtain the fraction. Let the fraction is x/y.

Step II: Multiply the fraction by 100 and write the percentage (%) symbol to find the required percent. Therefore, x/y = (x/y × 100) %

1. Convert each of the following fractions as percentage:

(i) 3/25 = (3/25 × 100) % = 12 %

(iii) 4/5 = (4/5 × 100) % = 80 %

(iii) 3/4 = (3/4 × 100) % = 75 %

(iv) 2/3 = (2/3 × 100) % = (200/3) % = 66  2/3 %

(v) 1 = (1 × 100) % = 100 %

Note: 100 % = 1


2. Convert 7/20 to per cent.

7/20 = (7/20 × 100) % = 35 %


3. Express each of the following fraction into a percentage:

(i) 6/5

= (6/5 × 100) % = 120 %                

(ii) 42/5

= 22/5 = (22/5 × 100) % = 440 %

(iii) 11/4

= 5/4 = (5/4 × 100) % = 125 %



4. Express each of the following statements in the percentage form:

(i) 5 out of 20 are bad

= 5/20 eggs are bad

= (5/20 × 100) % eggs are bad

= 25 % eggs are bad

(ii) 3 children in a class of 30 are absent.

= 3/30 children are absent

= (3/30 × 100) % children are absent

= 10 % children are absent         

(iii) 21 apples out of 30 are good

= 21/30 apples are good

= (21/30 × 100) % apples are good

= 70 % apples are good

(iv) 47 students out of 50 are present

= 47/50 students are present

= (47/50 × 100) % students are present

= 94 % students are present
