How Do You Find Percentages of Fractions? Typically, fractions are identified by two numbers written on either side of an oblique. The number written on the upper side is known as the numerator, and the one written below is the denominator. The denominator shows the number of parts comprising a whole, and the numerator represents number of those parts. For example, the fraction 4/7 represents the seven parts forming one whole, and this fraction has four parts. If you wanted to calculate the percentage of this fraction, we need to know how to do the decimal conversion of the percentage and how to multiply decimal form by a fraction. We divide the given percentage value by 100 to get the decimal form. For example, for finding 20 percentage of 5/7, we will first divide 20 by 100 to have 0.2. then, we will multiply the decimal value by the numerator of your fraction. For this example, multiply 0.2 by 5 to have 1. Now, substitute the obtained result over the denominator. For this example, we will put 1 over 7 to get 1/7 equals 20 percent of 5/7.
