Percent means "per hundred" (/100).

83 1/3% = (83 1/3)/100 (meaning of 83 1/3%)

= ((3*83 + 1)/3)/100 (convert to improper fraction)

= (250/3)/100 (evaluate the expression)

= 250/300 (evaluate the expression)

= (5*50)/(6*50) = (5/6)*(50/50) (reduce to lowest terms)

83 1/3% = 5/6

83 1/3% = (83 1/3)/100 (meaning of 83 1/3%)

= 250/300 (evaluate the expression)

= (5*50)/(6*50) = (5/6)*(50/50) (reduce to lowest terms)

83 1/3% = 5/6
