Say your fraction is 3/4 (3 quarters):
Divide 100 by 4 (the figure on the bottom line of the fraction), that gives you 25
multiply 25 by the top line of the fraction (3) and you get 75 therefore 3/4 is the same as 75%
try it with 3/5 your answer should be 60% as follows
100 divided by 5 (= 20) multiplied by 3 = 60

1/2 1divided by 2 which is 0.5.
