All you have to do is divide the top of the fraction by the bottom, then multiply the result by 100 , that's it!

1/4 , if you divide 1 by 4 you get 0.25 , then you multiply by 100

0.25*100= 25%

To change a fraction (or a decimal) to a percent, multiply the by 100%.

For example, to change `1/8` to a percent, multiply

`1/8 * 100%=1/8 * 100/1 %=100/8 %=12 1/2% =12.5%`
