To convert 57% to decimal, move the decimal point two places to the left.

57.0% ===> 0.570

**Hence, the equivalent decimal form of 57% is 0.57.**

To convert percent to fraction, divide the number by 100.

However, instead of using the symbol `-:` , use the fraction bar.

57% ===>` 57/100`

Since the fraction 57/100 can no longer be reduce,** hence the equivalent fraction of 57% is ` 57/100` .**

57% as a decimal would be 0.570 (3 significant figures), and the fraction would be 57 over 100 (in its most simple form).
