change it to a decimal. then change it to a fraction. and then reduce it
59 % = 59/100 which is in its simplest form.
You cannot simplify percentages or decimals. You can only simplify fractions. So 12% as a fraction in its simplest form is 3/25.
Because percentages are essentially the numerators of fractions with the same denominator, 100.
by dividing the number by 100.
You don't seem to quite understand the concept of percentages. Percent of what?
Percentages are easier for some purposes, harder for other.
Divide percent values by 100 to convert them to fractions. Therefore, 35 % = 35/100 = 7/20. The decimal equivalent is 0.35
divide to change the fraction into a decimal and multiply by 100 to change the decimal to a percent.
When calculating with percentages, one method is to first convert them to decimals or fractions. Using the decimal method, 80%=0.8 and 100%=1. Therefore, the literal translation of you question would read "0.8 x 1 = 0.8". 0.8 is the decimal answer. If you wanted a percentage answer, you would convert this back to 80%. Kind of a nonsense question, though. You usually do not take percentages of percentages.
