After learning **converting fraction to percent**, let’s practice by answering the following questions. There are different methods in converting fraction to percent. One method is to **convert the fraction to decimal** first, then multiply by the result by 100. However, in the solutions below, we will mostly use equivalent fractions. That is, since we want *a*% means *a*/100, we will convert the fraction to its equivalent fraction with denominator 100. We can do this by multiplying the numerator and the denominator by the same number.

6.) 3/5

7.) 3/8

8.) 7/20

9.) 1/5

10.) 7/50

**Solutions and Answers**

1). We can make 3/4 as 100 by multiplying the denominator by 25. In effect,

.

Therefore, **3/4** is equal to** 75%**.

2.) What number should we multiply to 8 to get 100? That is, 100/8 or 12.5.

.

Therefore,** 5/8** is equal to **62.5%**.

3.) This is a bit easy. What will you multiply to 10 to get 100? Of course, it’s 10. So,

.

Therefore, **9/10** is equal to **90%**.

4.) What should you multiply by 4 to get 100? It’s 25.

So, **1/4** is equal to **25%**.

5.) To make the denominator 100, we should multiply by 10 (similar to number 3). So,

.

So, **7/10** is equal to **70%**.

6.) What should we multiply by 5 to get 100? It’s 20. So,

So, **3/5** is equal to **60%**.

7.) As discussed in number 2, we should multiply 8 by 12.5 in order to get 100. Therefore,

.

So, **3/8** is equal to **37.5%**.

8.) What should be multiplied by 20 to get 100? It’s 5. So,

.

So, **7/20** is equal to **35%**.

9.) What should be multiplied by 5 to get 100? It’s 20. So,

Therefore, **1/5** is equal to **20%**.

10. What should be multiplied by 50 to get 100? It’s 2. So,

.

So, 7/50 is equal to 14%.
