Answer:

#56.25/100 = 56.25%#

Explanation:

A percentage can be obtained from a fraction with a denominator with a power of 10, or from a decimal.

Method 1

#9 div 16 = 0.5625#

#5625/10000 (div 100)/(div 100) = 56.25/100 = 56.25%#

Method 2

#9/16 xx 100%#

=#56.25%#

Note that as this is an exact decimal. it should not be rounded to 56.3%
