## Formula

The formula to convert a percentage to a fraction is:

**X/Y = Z% / 100**

- X/Y = Fraction
- Z% = percentage value

## How to calculate percentages to fractions?

To convert a percentage to a fraction, follow these steps:

- Step 1: Convert the percentage to a decimal by dividing it by 100. For example, if you have a percentage of 75%, you would divide 75 by 100 = 75/100 = 0.75
- Step 2: If the decimal is not in its simplest form, simplify it by dividing both the numerator and the denominator by their greatest common divisor (GCD).

## Solved Example

Example: Convert 75% to a fraction.

Step 1: 75% = 75/100 = 0.75

Step 2: The decimal 0.75 is already in its simplest form since the GCD of 75 and 100 is 25, and both can be divided by 25 = (75/100) *(25/25)

So, 75% as a fraction in its simplest form is 3/4.

**Here are a few more examples:**

- 20% as a fraction: 37.5% = 37.5/100 = 3/8
- 66.66% as a fraction: 66.66% = 66.66/100 = 333/500
- 12.5% as a fraction: 12.5% = 12.5/100 = 1/8
