% (>100) -----------------> Improper fraction / Mixed fraction

% (multiple of 100) ----> Integer

## Some more examples

To have better understanding on "Converting percent into fraction"

Example 1 :

Convert the percentage given below into a proper fraction

24%

Solution :

24%  =  24/100  =  6/25

Hence the proper fraction equal to the given percentage is 6/25

Example 2 :

Convert the percentage given below into a proper fraction

2.4%

Solution :

2.4%  =  2.4/100  =  24/1000  =  3/125

Hence the proper fraction equal to the given percentage is 3/125

Example 3 :

Convert the percentage given below into a proper fraction

0.55%

Solution :

0.55%  =  0.55/100  =  55/10000  =  11/2000

Hence the proper fraction equal to the given percentage is 11/2000

Example 4 :

Convert the percentage given below into a proper fraction

0.25%

Solution :

0.25%  =  0.25/100  =  25/10000

Hence the proper fraction equal to the given percentage is 1/400

Example 5 :

Convert the percentage given below into an improper fraction

125%

Solution :

125%  =  125/100  =  5/4

Hence the improper fraction equal to the given percentage is 5/4

Example 6 :

Convert the percentage given below into a mixed fraction

150%

Solution :

150%  =  150/100  =  3/2  =  1 1/2

Hence the mixed fraction equal to the given percentage is 1 1/2

Example 7 :

Convert the percentage given below into a proper fraction

24.25%

Solution :

24.25%  =  24.25/100  =  2425/1000 = 97/400

Hence the proper fraction equal to the given percentage is 97/400

Example 8 :

Convert the percentage given below into an integer

200%

Solution :

200%  =  200/100  =  2

Hence the integer equal to the given percentage is 2

Example 9 :

Convert the percentage given below into a mixed fraction

250%

Solution :

250%  =  250/100  =  5/2  =  2 1/2

Hence the mixed fraction equal to the given percentage is2 1/2

Example 10 :

Convert the percentage given below into a mixed fraction

125%

Solution :

125%  =  125/100  =  5/4  =  1 1/4

Hence the mixed fraction equal to the given percentage is 5 1/4

After having gone through the stuff and examples,  we hope that the students would have understood "How to convert percentage into fraction".
