How Do You Convert a Fraction to a Percentage?
This is a standard two-step process which begins with a division operation of what is present and ends with multiplying that quotient by one hundred. We will explore this by changing 3/8 to a percentage.
Step 1) Straight Division - Divide the numerator (top number of fraction) by the denominator (bottom number). When we divide 3 by 8, the quotient is: 0.375
Step 2) Multiply by 100 - We would then multiply this decimal value by 100 which as a result moves the decimal two places to the right. In this case 0.375 x 100 = 37.5. You can place a percentage symbol after it to indicate that it is representative of part of a whole or 37.5%.
What is the Fraction Method for Finding Percentages?
Percentages mean per 100, and they are very commonly used all around the world. It is one of the most important concepts in mathematics that you will also use in your day-to-day life. Even though in some cases the percentages do exceed 100, but generally percentages are quantity out of 100.
So, how do you calculate percentages? Well, you can find percentages by the fraction method.
Example: Adam had 50 apples, and he sold 20 on sale day. What percentage of apples were left at his stall?
In fraction method you use the following formula; (Quantity required)/(Total quantity) Here; 30 apples are left and the total quantity is 50. 30/50 Now, you simplify the fraction, and you will get 3/5. The last step is to multiply the simplified fraction with 100%, 3/5 × 100% = 300/5 = 60%.
