Fraction: 20/100Decimal: 0.20

2.5% = 0.025 as a decimal. As a fraction, 25/1000 = 1/40

Because when you change a fraction into a decimal and change the decimal into a percent it all adds up... Let me explain... 1/2 is a fraction The decimal of 1/2 is 0.5 Move the decimal point 2 places to the right and you get the percent of 0.5 which is 50%. Fractions and decimals are the same, they're just used in different forms.

.25 and 25% both fractions of 100.

divide to change the fraction into a decimal and multiply by 100 to change the decimal to a percent.

Make the dinomenator 100 and then correct the numerator then make it a decimal then a fraction.

25% = 1/4 as a fraction or 0.25 as a decimal

Fractions to Decimals to percent Example- For example the fraction is 4/7. You divide the numerator by the denominator and you get 0.571. If you want it into a percent, (Percent= out of 100) You multiply the decimal by 100 and you get 57.1%

243 hundredths in decimal fractions = 2.43

They can show the same number, just in different ways. You can convert fractions into decimals or decimals into fractions.

Fractions and decimals are alike because you can make a fraction into a decimal (here's an exanple; 1/2 can be made into 0.5) and vice versa. The only difference is the different forms they are written in; a fraction is written in fraction form and a decimal is written in decimal form.

They might round their fractions to different decimal places.

18.75% = 0.1875 are fractions. They are fractions in percentage or decimal form rather than in the form of a ratio. However, that does not stop them being fractions. Their rational equivalent is 1875/10000 which can be simplified, if required.

All rational fractions.

Let's say your decimal is 0.4. Convert it to a percent (40%) 40% is 40/100, then reduce (4/10--> 2/5) :D

The answer depends on the form with which you are more comfortable. The main disadvantage of using decimal fractions is that they may result in an accumulation of rounding errors.
