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:

$\frac{17}{25} \left(\frac{4}{4}\right) = \frac{68}{100}$

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:

$\frac{17}{25} = 0.68$

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

0.68 = 68%
