Percent to Fraction Converter

The Percent to Fraction conversion calculator is used to convert a number in percent (%) to Fraction. It has a blank text field where you enter the value to be converted in percent. The ‘Convert’ button is used to initiate the conversion from percent to Fraction. The conversion result is then displayed below the control buttons in Fraction. The ‘Reset’ button is used to erase all data of the previous conversions from the calculator. This converter also indicates a visual fraction view in relation to the conversion result.

Example;

Convert 4z5% to Fraction

Solution

First, enter the value in percent (45) in the blank text field. Press the ‘Convert’ button to get the results in Fraction. The conversion result will be;

45/100 = 9/20

This means that 45 percent is equal to 9/20.

Use the same procedure when you want to convert new values in percent to get the corresponding results in Fractions.

The Percent to Fraction converter gives quick and accurate results based on the values you enter in the blank text field.

How to convert percent to afraction?

The first procedure is to divide the percentage value by 100 to obtain the decimal number.

The number of digits is then counted to the right of the decimal point of the decimal number. For example, 0.25 has 2 digits on the right of the decimal point, thus d=2

Calculate the factor that will make the decimal number to be an integer.

F = 10d e.g. f = 102 = 100

Multiply the decimal number (x) and then divide by the conversion factor (f)

X * f/f = y/f

For example; 0.25 x 100/100 = 25/100

Determine the Greatest Common Divisor (GCD) of the fraction

Example; GCD (25/100)          = 25

The fraction is then reduced when the numerator and denominator is divided by the GCD value.

e.g. 25/100 = (25/25) / (100/25) = 1/4
