## Icantdomath 3 years ago Write each % as a fraction in Simplest form. 56 1/4%

1. lgbasallote

divide that by 100 then simplify.. for example $5\text{%} \implies \frac{5}{100}$ then simplify $\implies \frac{1}{20}$ does that help?

2. Icantdomath

But what bout the fraction?

$\Large 4 \frac 12 \text % \implies \frac{4 \frac 12}{100} \implies \frac{\frac 92}{100} \implies \frac{9}{200}$ got it?

..i need to go now...i hope @Shane_B can explain further..but just so you know..all i did was improper fractions

15. Shane_B

To convert a % to a fraction, you just divide the % by 100. That's what @lgbasallote is saying. You have 56 1/4 %....make that an improper fraction if you need to and then divide that by 100:$\frac{\frac{225}{4}}{100}=?$
