Best Answer

Starting from a decimal fraction, a percentage is simply the decimal fraction with the decimal point moved two place to the right.

If you have a rational fraction, you convert it to an equivalent fraction whose denominator is 100. Then the numerator of that equivalent fraction is the percentage.
