Answer:

See below

Explanation:

Let's convert to decimal first, and I'll explain why later.

To convert #1/6# to decimal, just divide #1# by #6#!!
(That's what the fraction is showing; a fraction = numerator #divide# denominator)

#1divide6=0.16666666...#

So that is #1/6# in decimal form!
(#0.16# recurring)

Note that per in percent means each and #cent# means 100.

Therefore, percentage is just the quantity out of #100#! Simple!

So, multiply the decimal form of #1/6# by #100# (That is why I did decimal first)

#0.16666666...*100=16.66666.......%#
