    of the chapter ‘Comparing Quantities’, we will look at different forms of percentage.

    What are the Different forms of expressing percentage?

    Percentage can be expressed in 3 ways:

    1. A ratio or a fraction
    2. A fraction with denominator 100
    3. Decimals

    Let us understand this with the help of a table by drawing a square of four parts.

    Parts of a square

    Ratio/Fraction

    Denominator 100

    Decimal

    Percentage

    As one part of the square is coloured out of

    4, this is 1

    4

    To get the denominator as 100 both the numerator and denominator of

    1 will be

    4

    multiplied by 25.

    1 × 25 25

    =

    4 × 25 100

    If we divide the fraction 25 we

    100

    get the decimal

    form as 0.25.

    25 is 25%.
