## How to Convert a Percent to a Fraction

To convert a percent to a fraction:

1. Remove the percent symbol and use that number as the numerator (top) of your fraction and 100 as the denominator (bottom) of the fraction.
2. If your numerator has decimals, convert it to a whole number. For every n decimal places in the numerator, multiply the numerator and denominator by 10ⁿ.
3. Find the Greatest Common Factor (GCF) of the numerator and denominator, then divide both the numerator and denominator by the GCF to simplify your fraction.
4. When possible, you can then simplify the fraction to a mixed number fraction.

Example of converting 25% to a fraction:

25/100

GCF of 25 and 100 = 25

(25 / 25) / (100 / 25) = 1/4

Example of converting 20.55% to a fraction:

20.55/100

(20.55 * 100) / (100 * 100) = 2055/10000

GCF = 5

(2055 / 5) / (10000 / 5) = 411/2000

Example of converting 125% to a fraction:

125/100

GCF = 25

(125 / 25) / (100 / 25) = 5/4

5/4 = 1 1/4
