87/100 and 0.87

87% = 87⁄100

Expressed as an improper fraction in its simplest form, 87 percent is equal to 87/100, or eighty-seven hundredths.

To convert any decimal to percent, simply multiply the decimal by 100. So, 0.87 × 100 = 87%

Ahh... A percent with a fraction? Are you thinking decimal?? Anyways, 1% is 1/100. 10% is 1/10. 25% is 1/4. 50% is 1/2. 75% is 3/4. 100% is 1/1. Get it? Okay now add the fraction in the percent to the fraction that the percent is equivalent to. So if you had like 57% and 3/10, you would do this. 57/100 + 3/10. Okay, so you see how the denominators aren't the same? Find the GCF. (Greatest common factor.) So, just do this: 57/100 + 30/100. (I multiplied 10 to 100 in 3/10, and then you have to do the same with the numerator.) So the answer would be 87/100. You cannot simplify this fraction.
