# How do you express 75% as a reduced fraction?

May 31, 2018

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

"Percent" or "%" means "out of 100" or "per 100".

Therefore 75% can be written as $\frac{75}{100}$.

We can reduce this as:

$\frac{75}{10} = \frac{25 \cdot 3}{25 \cdot 4} = \frac{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{25}}} \cdot 3}{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{25}}} \cdot 4} = \frac{3}{4}$
