You can use the calculators below to convert the fraction to the percent and vice versa.
Fraction to Percent
Converting the fraction to the percent is easy. You should enter numerator and denominator of a fraction, then the calculator divides one by another, then multiplies it by 100 to get the percentage and formats according to the desired precision.
Percent to Fraction
Converting the percent to the fraction is trickier (if you want to get nice-looking result). Let's look at the example value of 37.5%.
First the calculator gets the numerator and denominator, that is, 37.5 and 100. Then both are multiplied by 10 to get rid of decimal point, i.e. to get integers, that is, 375 and 1000. Then the calculator looks for the greatest common divisor (GCD) of these two integers. Both integers are then divided by it to get smaller values. Let's do it with our example
The GCD of 375 and 1000 is 125. 375 divided by 125 equals 3, 1000 divided by 125 equals 8. The resulting fraction is 3/8.
