To reduce a fraction to its simplest form, find the GCF of the numerator and the denominator and divide them both by it. If the GCF is 1, the fraction is in its simplest form.

16 percent equals 16 over 100 which is equal to 8 over 50 which is equal to 4 over 25 so your answer is 4 over 25

This sounds like a homework question. Trust me, I hate fractions too. 5% is 5/100, then you have to divide the 5 by 5 (1... duh) and the one hundred by 5 as well to make the fraction even. 20. So 5% in it's simplest form (meaning the fraction can't be divided anymore) is 1/20.

"Lowest terms" refers to the fraction part of a mixed number. To put any fraction in its simplest form, find the GCF of the numerator and the denominator and divide them both by it. If the GCF is 1, the fraction is in its simplest form (lowest terms).

To make a percent into a fraction you just need to divide the percent by 100. So, 37/100 would be 37% expressed as a fraction.
