In this page, conversion of fraction to percentage is explained. The most important part is to understand the context in which a fraction is given and handle the conversion accordingly.

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.
