To convert a percentage into a fraction, place the given number over 100 and reduce it to its lowest term.
Consider the following example:
(i) 20%
[We know % = 1/100]
= 20/100
[Now we need to reduce 20/100 to its lowest term]
= 20/100 ÷ 20/20
[Divide both the numerator and denominator by 20]
= 1/5
(ii) 6%
[We know % = 1/100]
= 6/100
[Now we need to reduce 6/100 to its lowest term]
= 6/100 ÷ 2/2
[Divide both the numerator and denominator by 2]
= 3/50
(iii) 150%
[We know % = 1/100]
= 150/100
[Now we need to reduce 150/100 to its lowest term]
= 150/100 ÷ 50/50
[Divide both the numerator and denominator by 50]
= 3/2
= 1 1/2
(iv) 48%
[We know % = 1/100]
= 48/100
[Now we need to reduce 48/100 to its lowest term]
= 48/100 ÷ 4/4
[Divide both the numerator and denominator by 4]
= 12/25
(v) 92%
[We know % = 1/100]
= 92/100
[Now we need to reduce 92/100 to its lowest term]
= 92/100 ÷ 4/4
[Divide both the numerator and denominator by 4]
= 23/25
(vi) 25%
[We know % = 1/100]
= 25/100
[Now we need to reduce 25/100 to its lowest term]
= 25/100 ÷ 25/25
[Divide both the numerator and denominator by 25]
= 1/4
