Percentage is most of the time out of 100%. Therefore to turn it into a fraction you put it as 12/100. To reduce this you have to divide the top and bottom numbers by a common factor (numbers that multiply to make the number, i.e 6 x 2 =12). The factors of 12 are: 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 12 The factors of 100 are: 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 25, 50, 100 The highest possible number which is found in the factors of both is 4. So 12 / 4 =3 And 100 / 4 =25 Ans = 3/25
