Convert the Decimal to a Percent:

This online calculator will convert a mixed number to an improper fraction, reduce that fraction if it can be reduced, then perform the division of the numerator by the denominator to find the decimal equivalent of the mixed number. Finally, it will convert the decimal to a percent. You can enter mixed numbers, fractions or integers.

A mixed number such as 2 3/4 can be converted to a decimal. It is implied that 2 3/4 is really 2 + 3/4 and that 2 = 2/1 therefore, we are first adding the fraction 2/1 + 3/4. Since 4 is the denominator original fraction part we will use it as our common denominator. 2/1 * 4/4 = 8/4. Then, 8/4 + 3/4 = 11/4. 11/4 is 11 ÷ 4 = 2.75. Converting the decimal to a percent we multiply by 100. 2.75 * 100 = 275%

2 3/4 = 2/1 + 3/4 = 8/4 + 3/4 = 11/4 = 11 ÷ 4 = 2.75; 2.75 * 100 = 275%

As you may have noticed, 2.75 is just the whole part of 2 3/4 added to 3 ÷ 4 = 0.75. This is certainly another valid approach to converting mixed numbers to decimals. Just be careful of mixed numbers that contain improper fractional parts. For example, 7 5/4 can be converted in 2 different ways:

7 5/4 = 7/1 + 5/4 = 28/4 + 5/4 = 33/4 = 33 ÷ 4 = 8.25 or 825%, or

7 5/4 = 7 + (5 ÷ 4) = 7 + 1.25 = 8.25 or 825%
