## Convert a Fraction to a Percentage

Fractions are numbers expressed as a part of a whole. They are a convenient shorthand that make it easy for humans to describe a number:

• "5 out of every 8 dentists approves of DQYDJ"
• "1/4 of years are leap years"

They consist of a numerator and denominator, usually written in one of these two forms:

numerator/denominator

or

\frac{numerator}{denominator}

To convert a fraction to a percent, divide the numerator by the denominator, then multiply by 100 to get the actual amount. For example, using the (made up!) dentist example:

(\frac{5}{8})*100=\\(.625)*100=\\62.5\%

See this calculator to convert a percent to fraction. Or instead, convert a fraction to decimal or a decimal to fraction.
