Percentages are an essential form of representing statistical data which is why students must have a clear understanding of this concept. Percentages are generally out of 100, 100 being the highest percentage but sometimes it exceeds 100%. Moreover, percentages can be converted into fractions and decimals as well. To convert a percentage into a decimal, you must first learn to convert percentages into fractions. Therefore, we will first learn to convert a percentage into a fraction. Let's take 40% as an example. How do you convert 40% into a fraction? Well, it is very simple. You remove the "%" sign. To remove the percent sign, you simple have to replace it with 1/100.
