CONVERTING PERCENTAGE INTO FRACTION

**CONVERTING PERCENTAGE INTO FRACTION -**

**Converting a percentage into a fraction involves expressing the percentage as a fraction with a denominator of 100. Here's how you can do it:-**

__Write the Percentage as a Fraction:-__Let's say you have a percentage, such as 25%.__Express as a Fraction:-__To convert 25% to a fraction, you write it as 25/100.__Simplify the Fraction:-__You can simplify the fraction by dividing both the numerator and denominator by their greatest common divisor. In this case, the greatest common divisor of 25 and 100 is 25.

** 25 25 ÷ 25 1**

** --------- = ------------ = -------**

** 100 100 ÷ 25 4**

**So, 25% is equivalent to 1/4 as a fraction. (Ans.)**

**Let's take another example:-**

**Example.2) If you have 60% and you want to convert it to a fraction:-**

**Simplify the fraction by dividing both the numerator and denominator by** **their greatest common divisor, which is 20:**

** 60 60 ÷ 20 3**

** --------- = ------------ = -------**

** 100 100 ÷ 20 5**

**So, 60% is equivalent to 3/5 as a fraction. (Ans.)**

**In general, to convert a percentage p% to a fraction:**

** p**

** ---------**

** 100**

**And then simplify the fraction if possible. This fraction represents the ratio of the given percentage to the whole (which is 100 in terms of percentages).**
