Let's say we are given the fraction of

**4/5**. To convert any fraction to a percent, use these two simple steps:

**Multiply by 100**. 4/5 x 100 =**400/5**.**Reduce the fraction to its simplest form**. 400 and 5 are both divisible by 5. 400 ÷ 5 = 80. The answer is**80%**.

**Example 1: 2/3 = ___%**

- Multiply by 100. 2/3 x 100 =
**200/3**. - Reduce. 200 ÷ 3 = 66 2/3. The answer is
**66 2/3%**.

**Example 2: 3 1/4 = ___%**

- Multiply by 100. To do this, you can convert the mixed number to an improper fraction. 3 1/4 = (4 x 3 + 1)/4 = 13/4. 13/4 x 100 =
**1300/4**. - Reduce. 1300 ÷ 4 = 325. The answer is
**325%**.

*without*first converting it to an improper fraction:

- Multiply by 100. (3 1/4) x 100 = (3 x 100) + (1/4 x 100) = 300 + 25 =
**325**. - Reduce. You already have your answer:
**325%**.

**Example 3: 11/400 = ___%**

- Multiply by 100. 11/400 x 100 =
**11/4**. - Reduce. 11 ÷ 4 = 2.75. The answer is
**2.75%**.
