# How do you convert 3 3/4 into a decimal and percent?

Mar 11, 2018

See below.

#### Explanation:

To turn $3$ $\frac{3}{4}$ to a decimal, you must first convert it to an improper fraction, to do that you multiply the whole number ($3$) and the denominator ($4$).

$4$ X $3$ $=$ $12$

Then you add the product of $3$ and $4$ ($12$) to the numerator ($3$)

$3$ $+$ $12$ $=$ $15$

You then make the sum of the numerator and the product of the whole number and denominator into the numerator.

This leaves us with $\frac{15}{3}$

Now, to make that into a percent is easy.

$\frac{15}{3}$ X $\frac{x}{100}$

You need the multiply $15$ and $100$

$15$ X $100$ $=$ $1500$

Then you divide the product by $3$

$\frac{1500}{3}$ = $500$

The percent is 500%
