How to Convert a Fraction to a Percent

  1. Use division to convert the fraction to a decimal:
    1/4 = 1 ÷ 4 = 0.25
  2. Multiply by 100 to get percent value:
    0.25 × 100 = 25%

Convert the fraction to a decimal number

The fraction bar between the numerator and the denominator means "divided by." So finding the decimal equivalent of a fraction such as 1/4 means 1 divided by 4.
1 ÷ 4 = 0.25

Convert the decimal number to a percent by multiplying by 100.

0.25 × 100 = 25%

It is not necessary to reduce a fraction before converting to a decimal but doing so might make the math easier.

For example, 6/12 = 6 ÷ 12 = 0.50. If you solve this with a calculator then it is easy to get the answer. However, if you solve this by hand or in your head, reducing 6/12 = 1/2, may make the problem easier and you may even recognize that 1/2 = 0.50.

Multiplying 0.50 by 100 we conclude that 6/12 = 50%.
