To convert a percentage to a fraction we must eliminate the “%” symbol by moving it two spaces to the left of the given number. In this case the given number is “12”. So, if you have 12%, the “%” is replaced with a decimal point that is then moved two spaces to the left of the 12 to give you: .12. The decimal point represents the number “100”. We then put the percentage number (12) as the numerator in a fraction and the “100” becomes the denominator. This converts 12% to look like 12/100.

It is important to remember that the “%” symbol always represents the number “100”.

1.

33% = ___

33/1000

33/10

33/100

3/300

33% converts to the decimal of .33. We then put the percentage number “33” as the numerator and the number “100” as the denominator and we get 33/100. Answer (c) is the correct answer

2.

64% = ___

6/400

64/100

64/10

64/1000

64% converts to the decimal of .64. We then put the percentage number “64” as the numerator and the number “100” as the denominator and we get 64/100. Answer (b) is the correct answer

3.

119% = ___

11/900

119/10

1/19

1 ^{19}⁄_{100}

119% converts to the decimal of 1.19. Remember, the decimal point moves two spaces to the left. This means the decimal point will come up between the two “1s”. We then put the percentage number “119” as the numerator and the number “100” as the denominator and we get 119/100 which can then be simplified as 1 ^{19}⁄_{100}. Answer (d) is the correct answer

4.

87% = ___

87/100

87/1000

87/10

87/001

87% converts to the decimal of .87. We then put the percentage number “87” as the numerator and the number “100” as the denominator and we get 87/100. Answer (a) is the correct answer

5.

39% = ___

39/10

3/900

39/100

3/.09

39% converts to the decimal of .39. We then put the percentage number “39” as the numerator and the number “100” as the denominator and we get 39/100. Answer (c) is the correct answer

6.

71% = ___

71/1

71/100

71/1000

8.

102% = ___

102/10

10/200

102/1000

1 ^{1}⁄_{50}

102% converts to the decimal of 1.02. Remember, the decimal point moves two spaces to the left. This means the decimal point will come up between the “1” and the “0”. We then put the percentage number “102” as the numerator and the number “100” as the denominator and we get 102/100 which can then be simplified as 1 ^{2}⁄_{100} or 1 ^{1}⁄_{50}. Answer (d) is the correct answer
