To convert a fraction into a percentage, you need a denominator of 100. So how do we convert a fraction such as 10 into a percentage? 25 Two ways! A) Create an equivalent fraction where the denominator is 100. 10 = ? 25 100 * 25 x 4 = 100 SO multiply the numerator by the same number. * 10 x 4 = 40 SO 40 = 40% 100 B) We can cross multiply! 10 = ? 25 100 * Multiply 10 x 100 = 1000 * Divide 1000 by 25 * Answer is 40, so 40 100 = 40% 2. How do I convert a decimal number to a percent? Let's start with 0.84. Look at the digits in the tenths and hundredths columns. We know there are 84 hundredths = 84/100 = 84%. But what about if our number is 0.841? What about the 1 thousandth? We include it as a decimal after the 84 = 84.1% This means it is 1 tenth of 1 hundredth (which is a thousandth). What if I have a whole number in my decimal? Look at this example: 1.84 We know we have 84 hundredths or 84%. The whole number 1 represents 100 hundredths, so 100 hundredths = 100%. So our percent becomes 184% 3. Let's convert a percent to a decimal number! Look at the following 11.6%. The 11 represents 11 hundredths or 0.11 The .6 represents 6 tenths of 1 hundredth (which is 6 thousandths) so our decimal becomes 0.116 February 18, 2015 Percent decimals and fractions.notebook February 18, 2015 Problems: 1.
