A percent can be written as a fraction with a denominator of 100.

However, 3 is not a factor of 100.

**Method 1**

The thirds are a problem because they end up as recurring decimals.

**Method 2**

**Method 3**

Do a division to get a decimal fraction.

The first 2 decimal places represent hundredths

Hundredths are the same as a percent.
