How can you convert 87.5% into a common faction?

The sign '%' or percentage stands for 'out of one hundred'. Hence 87.5% can also be written as:

  • (87 1/2)/100
Which can also be written as:

  • (175/2)/100
Or as:

  • (175/2)*(1/100)
In its simplest form, it can be written as:

  • 7/8
Hence converting the percentage 87.5 into a common fraction gives the answer of 7/8.
