Remember that a percent is really just a special way of expressing a fraction as a number out of 100 .
To convert a fraction to a percent, first divide the numerator by the denominator. Then multiply the decimal by 100 .
That is, the fraction 4 8 can be converted to decimal by dividing 4 by 8 . It can be converted to percent by multiplying the decimal by 100 .
4 ÷ 8 = 0.5 0.5 × 100 = 50

Write 2 25 as a percent.

Therefore, the fraction 2 25 is equivalent to 8 % .
Look at the image below, it shows that the fraction 2 25 is same as 8 out of 100 , that is, 8 % .
