Best Answer

20% equates to 20/100.

EXAMPLE : Find 20% of 374.

374 x 20/100 = 74.8 : This calculation can be simplified to 374 x 1/5.

NOTE : This method applies for all percentages. Simply replace the numerator of the equivalent fraction with the percentage required. It may then be possible to simplify the calculation.
