Convert percents, decimals and fractions

It is extremely useful to know how to convert percents, decimals and fractions. It is something you will use throughout your education and  quite often afterwards. Although it looks easy enough, but a staggering amount of people grow up without mastering this basic mathematical skill. To help you avoid that fate, we prepared a little tutorial for you, as well as some worksheets you can use for practice.

How to convert percents

It is very easy to convert percents into decimals, as well as fractions. To convert percents into decimals, divide the percentage by one hundred. The ratio will remain the same, but instead of, let us say, 14%, you will write 0.14. When writing with decimals instead of percents, 100% becomes 1. All the percentage between 0 and 100% becomes a value between 0 and 1.

Converting percents into fractions is done in a similar fashion. The 14% we mentioned earlier will become 14/100 when you write as a fraction. As with any fraction, this fraction should be simplified if such a thing is possible. In this case, 14/100 will become 7/50 and that is an equivalent of 14%.

Converting decimals into percents is also very simple. All you have to do is to multiply the decimal number with 100. Turning fractions into percents is a bit more difficult and there are two ways of doing it. The first way is to convert the fraction into a decimal number and then turn that number into a percentage. The second way is to multiply the numerator of that fraction with 100 and to divide that number by the denominator. In any case, the result will be the same.

Now you are ready to practice by yourself. Enjoy using the worksheets below.
