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.
