Find Percentage From Fraction

## Find Percentage From Fraction

Fractions are comprised of a numerator and a denominator. The denominator represents the number of parts that make up one whole, and the numerator represents the number of those parts in the fraction. For example, 3/5 would mean that five parts equals one whole, and this fraction has three parts. If you wanted to find a percentage of a fraction, you need to know how to convert a percentage to a decimal and how to multiply that decimal by the fraction.

If the number to be converted to a percentage is a decimal number like 0.57, you may not need to do anything to it before you go to the next step. However, if it is a fraction like 3/20, you should first divide the numerator (3 in this case) by the denominator (20 in this case) to get a decimal number.

You can format the decimal numbers as a percent for easier viewing. Just highlight the range and select Percent from the Format Cells dialog. Or Copy column C and choose Paste > Special > Values to replicate the text in column D. Note, however, that if you change any of the values in column B, you will have to repeat the Copy-Paste-Special-Values step. (Source: www.pcworld.com)
