To convert a fraction into a percentage; we need to multiply the fraction by 100.

Let us consider how to change a fraction to a percent**(i)** 42/100

= 42%**(ii)** 73/100

= 73%**(iii)** 6/100

= 6%

**(iv)** 15/100

= 15%

**(v)** 39/100

= 39%

**(vi)** 11/100

= 11%

**For example:**

**(i) Express 3/4 as a percent.**

*Solution:*

¾ × 100

= (3 × 100)/4

= 300/4

= 300/4 ÷ 4/4

[Divide the numerator and denominator by 4]

= 75%.

**Answer:** 75%

**(ii) Express 12/5 as a percent.**

*Solution:*

12/5 × 100

= (12 × 100)/5

= 1200/5

= 1200/5 ÷ 5/5

[Divide the numerator and denominator by 5]

= 240%.

**Answer:** 240%

**(iii) Express 13/6 as a percent.***Solution:*

13/6 × 100

= (13 × 100)/6

= 1300/6

= 1300/6 ÷ 2/2

[Divide the numerator and denominator by 2]

= 650/3

= 216 2/3%**Answer:** 216 2/3%**(iv) Express 19/4 as a percent.***Solution:*

19/4 × 100

= (19 × 100)/4 = 1900/4

= 1900/4 ÷ 4/4

[Divide the numerator and denominator by 4]

= 475%.**Answer:** 475%**(v) Express 27/2 as a percent.***Solution:*

27/2 × 100

= (27 × 100)/2

= 2700/2
