Decimals and percentages are easier to compare than fractions - particularly if they are unlike fractions. That does not explain why percentages are required when we have decimal number and there is no good answer to that!

Of course! Without decimals, you couldn't calculate percentages or fractions. Decimals allow you to break a number up. A decimal is basically a fraction, and when you calculate fraction adding, subtraction, multiplication, and division, sometimes it is easier to calculate a fraction by first changing it to a decimal instead.

They are not, so the question is misguided. Decimals are good for some purposes, percentages for others.They are not, so the question is misguided.

turn both fractions into decimals and then multiply!

Because that it s harder to work out percentages than fractions and decimals

percentages and decimals are the same they are just expressed in a different way

The circle graph (or a pie chart) is used for showing percentages and/or decimals or to show a fraction

percentage is a fraction of 1 with a denominator of 100, eg 45 % is 45 / 100 or 0.45 in decimal you can interchange the values of percentages, decimals and fractions, each is just a more convinient way of saying the same thing, percentages tend to be in the money world, straight decimals are for arithmetic and generally fractions are pre decimal

They can both be converted into decimals and from there into fractions or percentages.

Divide the numerator of the fraction by the denominator, using long division if necessary, to get a decimal fraction. Move the decimal point two places to the right and append a percent symbol for a percentage.
