It could very well depend on what number you have for each fraction or percentage. For example, 3/4 would equal to 75%. Percents are basically based on 100, so 4 in 3/4 would become 100 so 3 would become 75. 75 is 75%.


There is no difference in actual value, as they are two different expressions of the same number.

E.g. 1/4 = 0.25

However, for many fractions the percentage is a larger scalar value, because a percentage represents a fraction with a denominator of 100, i.e. increments of 1/100.

20% = 20/100 = 1/5
