Percent as a Fraction:

lets say you have a percentage of 56%. if you write that as a fraction you have 56/100 or in lowest terms it would be 14/25.

Decimal as a Fraction:

lets say you have a decimal of .56

if you remember that the 5 is in the tenths place and the 6 is in the hundredths place. if you multiply .56 by 100 (the number one hundred has been linked to words like centenial or century or cent... you know like one cent or 100 pennys is 1 dollar... well the word per-cent... percent or percentage means dealing with the number 100) you get 56%.

if you recall that answer 14/25 in the percent to fraction explanation... 14/25 is equal to .56

Therefore you can write 56% = 14/25

and you can write .56 = 14/25

its all the same thing.
