First, let’s go over what a fraction represents. The number above the line is called the numerator, while the number below the line is called the denominator. The fraction shows how many portions of the number there are, in relation to how many would make up the whole. For instance, in the fraction 7/8, we could say that the value is 7 portions, out of a possible 8 portions to make up the whole.

For percentages, the difference is that we want to know how many portions there are if there are 100 portions possible. “Percent” means “per hundred”. For example, if we look at the percentage 25%, that means we have 25 portions of the possible 100 portions. Re-writing this in fraction form, we see 25/100.

The first step in converting a fraction to a percentage is to adjust the fraction so that the denominator is 100. To do this, you first divide 100 by the denominator:

$\frac{100}{8} = 12.5$8100=12.5

We can then adjust the whole fraction using this number, like so:

First, you need to calculate your grade in percentages. The total answers count 8 - it's 100%, so we to get a 1% value, divide 8 by 100 to get 0.08. Next, calculate the percentage of 7: divide 7 by 1% value (0.08), and you get 87.50% - it's your percentage grade.

The fraction 7/8 cannot be written as a whole number. As a fraction it is, by definition, only part of a whole. You could write it as a decimal 0.875, but that still represents a part of a whole. One way to express the idea of 7/8 using whole numbers is to say that 875 is 7/8 of 1000.

To convert fractions to percentages divide the numerator (number on the top) by the denominator (number on the bottom) and multiply by 100 . This will give you the fraction as a percentage.

To convert a percentage to a decimal, divide by 100. So 25% is 25/100, or 0.25. To convert a decimal to a percentage, multiply by 100 (just move the decimal point 2 places to the right).

How do you calculate a percentage? To calculate a percentage, you typically divide the part (the smaller value) by the whole (the larger value), and then multiply the result by 100. This gives you the percentage value as a number between 0 and 100.
