Percent to Fraction converter


How to convert Percent to Fraction:

  1. Divide the percent by 100 to get decimal number:
  2. Count the number of digits (d) to the right of the decimal point of the decimal number.
  3. Ex. 2.56 has 2 digits to the right of the decimal point, so d = 2.
  4. Calculate the factor (f) for making the decimal number an integer:
  5. ƒ = 10d
  6. Ex:
  7. ƒ = 102 = 100
  8. Multiply and divide the decimal number x by the factor f:
  9. x * ƒ / ƒ = y / ƒ
  10. x * ƒ / ƒ = y / ƒ
  11. Ex:
  12. 2.56 * 100 / 100 = 256 / 100
  13. Find the greatest common divisor (GCD) of the fraction.
  14. Example:
  15. GCD(256,100) = 4
  16. Reduce the fraction by dividing the numerator and denominator by the GCD value:
  17. Ex:
  18. 256 / 100 = (256/4) / (100/4) = 64/25

Example:

One percent is equal to one hundredth:

1% = 1/100

In order to convert a percent to a fraction, divide the percent by 100% and reduce the fraction.

For example, 56% is equal to 56/100 with GCD=4 and is equal to 14/25:

56% = 56/100 = 14/25
