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
