Convert mixed numbers or mixed fractions to percents. The mixed number to percentage calculator finds the decimal equivalent by finding the decimal value of the fraction, adding the decimal to the whole number part of the mixed number, and multiplying by 100 to get the percent.

## How to Convert a Mixed Number to a Percentage

Follow these 3 steps to convert a mixed number to a percent:

- Convert the fraction part of the mixed number to a decimal: Divide the numerator by the denominator
- Add the decimal to the whole number part of the mixed number
- Convert the decimal to a percent: Multiply the decimal number by 100

A mixed number is a whole number plus a fraction. You can convert fraction part of the mixed number to a decimal and then multiply by 100 to get the percent value. Alternatively you can convert mixed number to an improper fraction, and then convert it to a decimal by dividing numerator by denominator. Finally, multiply the decimal by 100 to find the percent value.

### Example: Convert the mixed number 2 3/4 to a percentage

- Convert the fraction part of the mixed number to a decimal. Divide the numerator by the denominator:

3 / 4 = 0.75

- Add the decimal to the whole number part of the mixed number:

2 + 0.75 = 2.75 - Convert the decimal to a percent. Multiply the decimal number by 100:

2.75 * 100 = 275%

## Secondary Method: Convert a Mixed Number to a Percent by Fraction Addition

You can also convert a mixed number to a percentage using fraction addition. First convert the whole number part of the mixed number to an improper fraction and add it to the fraction part of the mixed number. Then divide numerator by denominator and multiply by 100 to get the percent value.

### Example: Convert the mixed number 7 1/5 to a percentage using fraction addition

- 7 1/5 = 7/1 + 1/5
- 7 1/5 = (7/1 * 5/5) + 1/5
- 7 1/5 = 35/5 + 1/5
- 7 1/5 = 36/5
- 7 1/5 = 7.2
- Multiply by 100 to get percent value: 7.2 * 100 = 720%
