The question is not very clear. We can convert 24/150 to decimals, percentage, ratio.

24/150 is a proper fraction. We can reduce it to its lowest form i.e. divide both the numerator and denominator by 6 because the Greatest Common Factor (G.C.F.) between 24 and 150 is 6.

So, 24/150  = 4/25.

Now to convert 24/150 or 4/25 to decimals:

1) We can see that if we multiply the denominator, 25 by 4 it will give 100. So multiply both the numerator and the denominator by 4 to get 16/100.

2) Now write down 16 with the decimal point 2 spaces from the right (because 100 has two zeros)

Answer: 0.16

Now to convert 24/150 or 4/25 to percent:

Percent means "per 100" so try to change the fraction to '?/100' form.

1)Again multiply both the numerator and the denominator by 4 to get 16/100.

2) Write down 16 with percent sign.

Answer: 16%

Now to convert 24/150 to ratio:

1) Simply reduce it to its lowest form by dividing both the numerator and denominator by 6 because the Greatest Common Factor (G.C.F.) between 24 and 150 is 6 to get 4/25.

2) Write down 4/25 in the form of ratio.

Answer: 4:25
