Fraction to percentage formula
"Well thats all well and good, Mr Word Problem", we hear you say, "but what about the fraction to percent formula? Don't you think that would be a bit more useful?" Well, since you feel so strongly about the topic, here it is for you:
n/d * 100 = p
n is the numerator,
d is the denominator, and
p is the percentage (as a percentage!).
In most cases when working with fractions, we want to simplify the fraction. When using the convert fraction to percent calculator, simplification is not necessary.
