Convert 40% into a fraction.

• percentage cannot be converted to a fraction
• 40% = 40//100 = 2//5
• 40% = 40//100 = 2//5

The answer is "2//5"

Convert 3/5 into a percentage.

• 3//5 = 3/5 xx 100 % = 60%
• 3//5 = 3/5 xx 100 % = 60%
• it cannot be converted

The answer is "60%"

Note that a percentage is given in a context, like the number of apples is 50% of the number of oranges.

When the percentage is converted to a fraction, the fraction is specified in the same context, like the number of apples is 1//2 fraction of number of oranges.
