A percent and a fraction are two different ways of expressing a portion or a part of a whole.

## Percent

A percent is a way of expressing a value as a fraction of 100. It is denoted by the symbol “%”. For example, if you have 30 out of 100 apples, you can say you have 30%. Percentages are used to represent proportions or ratios on a scale of 0 to 100.

## Fraction

A fraction represents a part of a whole or a ratio of two quantities. It is written in the form of a numerator (top number) over a denominator (bottom number), separated by a horizontal line.

### How to convert percent to fraction

Converting a percent to a fraction involves a simple process. Here’s how you can do it:

**Write the Percent as a Fraction Over 100:**

Take the given percent and write it as a fraction with the percent value as the numerator and 100 as the denominator.

**Simplify the Fraction (if Possible):**

If the numerator and denominator of the fraction have a common factor other than 1, you can simplify the fraction by dividing both the numerator and denominator by that common factor.

**Example – Convert 75% to a Fraction**

**Ans.** Write the percent as a fraction over 100:

Percent = 75%, Fraction = 75/100

Simplify the fraction:

The numerator (75) and denominator (100) have a common factor of 25. Divide both by 25:

Simplified Fraction = 75/100 ÷ 25/25 = 3/4

So, 75% is equivalent to the fraction 3/4.

In general, the formula for converting a percent to a fraction is:

**Percent as Fraction = Percent Value / 100**

And then simplify the fraction if needed.

Remember, fractions are typically in their simplest form when the numerator and denominator have no common factors other than 1.
