# How do you change fractions to a decimal and a percent?

Jun 10, 2018

#### Explanation:

• Changing fractions to a decimal you just have to divide the Quotient by the Divisor

For example;

$\frac{2}{5} \to \text{Fraction}$

Now dividing $2$ by $5$;

$2 \div 5 = 0.4 \to \text{Decimal}$

• Changing fractions to a percentage, you just have to multiply the fraction by $100$

For example;

$\frac{2}{5} \to \text{Fraction}$

100% -> "Percentage"

Now multiplying $\frac{2}{5}$ with 100%;

(2/5) xx 100% = 0.4 xx 100% = 40%
