In order to figure out what 16 over 64 or 16/64 is as expressed as a percentage, you should start by simplifying the fraction. You should note that both 16 and 64 can be divided by 2, 4, and 16. Since we are trying to simplify it we can divide both the numerator (the top) and the denominator (the bottom) by 16. The resultant fraction is 1 over 4. This is equivalent to .25 in decimal form. If you didn't know the decimal form off the top of your head then you can divide the numerator by the denominator in a standard 4-function calculator. Once you have the decimal form, or .25, then you multiply it by 100 in order to determine how it is expressed as a percentage. Our final answer is 25% since .25 multiplied by 100 is 25.
