### Examples on Fraction to Percentage Conversion

1. Express each of the following fractions as Percent

(i) 5/4 (ii) 2/3 (iii) 4/2 (iv) 1

**Solution:**

(i) 5/4 = (5/4*100)% = 125%

(ii) 2/3 = (2/3*100)% = 66.66%

(iii) 4/2 = (4/2*100)% = 200%

(iv) 1 = (1*100) = 100%

2. Convert 5/20 into Percent?

**Solution:**

= (5/20*100)%

= (1/4*100)%

= 25%

3. Express the following fraction in Percentage?

(i) 3/5 (ii) 5^{2}/5 (iii) 1 2/4

**Solution:**

(i) 3/5 = (3/5*100)% = (3*20)% = 60%

(ii) 5^{2}/5 = (25/5*100)% = (5*100)% = 500%

(iii) 1 2/4 = (6/4*100)% = (6*25)% = 150%

4. Describe the following statements in percentage form

(i) 4 out of 24 fruits are bad (ii) 5 children in a Class of 50 are absent (iii) 12 guava out of 18 are good (iv) 12 teachers among 20 are present

**Solution:**

(i) 4/24 fruits are bad

(4/24*100)% of fruits are bad

16.66% of fruits are bad.

(ii) 5 children in a Class of 50 are absent

= 5/50 children are absent

= (5/50*100)% children are absent

= 10% children are absent

(iii) 12 guava out of 18 are good

= 12/18 guava are good

= (12/18*100)% are good

= 66.66% are good

(iv) 12 teachers among 20 are present

= 12/20 teachers are present

= (12/20*100)% are present

=60% of teachers are present
