1 17 As a Percentage

It would be better to say "one 17". Here we show you how to type it with an example. For mixed numbers, please leave a space between the the integer and the fraction.

Fraction

I've seen a lot of students get confused whenever a question comes up about converting a fraction to a percentage, but if you follow the steps laid out here it should be simple. That said, you may still need a calculator for more complicated fractions (and you can always use our calculator in the form below).

Step 2: we write \(\frac{3}{5}\) as an equivalent fraction over \(100\). Using the fact that \(100 = 5\times 20\), we multiply both the numerator and the denominator by \(20\) to obtain our fraction: \[\frac{3}{5} = \frac{3\times 20}{5\times 20} = \frac{60}{100}\] Finally, since \(\frac{60}{100} = 60\%\) we can state that \(3\) is \(60\%\) of \(5\).

Step 2: We write \(\frac{0.45}{1}\) as an equivalent fraction over \(100\). To do this we multiply the numerator and the denominator by \(100\): \[\frac{0.45}{1} = \frac{0.45 \times 100}{1\times 100} = \frac{45}{100}\] Finally, since \(\frac{45}{100} = 45\%\) we can state that \(18\) is \(45\%\) of \(40\).

Note

Now you have seen the magic of these conversions, Now do one work, I am providing a conversion table below note it down in a A4 sheet of paper & paste it in front of your study table, glance through it once a day. It will make your life easier.

Examples: Three tenths should be typed as 3/10. One and one-half should be typed as 1 1/2. Note that there is a space between the integer and the fraction. (Source: percentagecalculator.pro)
