25% To convert from percent to decimal: divide by 100, and remove the "%" sign.

The easiest way to divide by 100 is to move the decimal point 2 places to the left. So:
From Percent To Decimal
move the decimal point 2 places to the left, and remove the "%" sign. From Decimal to Percent

To convert from decimal to percent: multiply by 100, and add a "%" sign.

The easiest way to multiply by 100 is to move the decimal point 2 places to the right. So:
From Decimal To Percent
move the decimal point 2 places to the right, and add the "%" sign. From Fraction to Decimal

The easiest way to convert a fraction to a decimal is to divide the top number by the bottom number (divide the numerator by the denominator in mathematical language)
Example: Convert 2/5 to a decimal

Divide 2 by 5: 2 ÷ 5 = 0.4

Answer: 2/5 = 0.4 From Decimal to Fraction

To convert a decimal to a fraction needs a little more work.
Example: To convert 0.75 to a fraction
Steps Example
First, write down the decimal "over" the number 1 0.75 / 1

Then multiply top and bottom by 10 for every number after the decimal point (10 for 1 number, 100 for 2 numbers, etc) 0.75 × 100 / 1 × 100
(This makes it a correctly formed fraction) = 75 / 100
Then Simplify the fraction 3 / 4 From Fraction to Percentage

The easiest way to convert a fraction to a percentage is to divide the top number by the bottom number. then multiply the result by 100, and add the "%" sign.
Example: Convert 3/8 to a percentage

First divide 3 by 8: 3 ÷ 8 = 0.375,
Then multiply by 100: 0.375 x 100 = 37.5

Answer: 3/8 = 37.5% From Percentage to Fraction

To convert a percentage to a fraction, first convert to a decimal (divide by 100), then use the steps for converting decimal to fractions (like above).
Example: To convert 80% to a fraction
Steps Example
Convert 80% to a decimal (=80/100): 0.8
Write down the decimal "over" the number 1 0.8 / 1

Then multiply top and bottom by 10 for every number after the decimal point (10 for 1 number, 100 for 2 numbers, etc) 0.8 × 10 / 1 × 10
(This makes it a correctly formed fraction) = 8 / 10
Then Simplify the fraction 4 / 5 Convert the decimal 0.875 to a percent?
