Answer:

#17/25 = 68%#

Explanation:

Percent means per 100. One way to obtain, the value per 100 is to multiply the numerator and the denominator both by a number that makes the denominator become 100. In the case of the given fraction, you multiply both the numerator and denominator by 4:

#17/25(4/4) = 68/100#

This means that #17/25 = 68%#

Another way to do it is to use a calculator to obtain the decimal form of the original fraction and then move the decimal point two places to the right:

#17/25 = 0.68#

Now we move the decimal point two places to the right:

0.68 = 68%
