### Fractions, Decimals, and Percents

- You can write a percent in different forms, such as a ratio, a fraction, and a decimal.
- The word “of” signals multiplication, and the number that follows “of” is the denominator or divisor.
- To convert a fraction to a decimal, divide the numerator by the denominator.
- To convert a decimal to a fraction, place the digits over their corresponding place value, then simplify if necessary. For example: 0.3 = 3/10, 0.03 = 3/100, 0.003 = 3/1000.
- To convert a decimal to a percent, move the decimal to the right two places.

### Fractions, Decimals, and Percents

- 58% = [58/100] =

[29/50]

Write 90% as a fraction

- 90% = [90/100] =

[9/10]

Write 75% as a fraction

- 75% = [75/100] =

[3/4]

57/100 is obviously 57 per cent you don't need to further complicate it by dividng 57 by a hundred. 1 percentile is 1/100 so you do not need to do any further calculations
