Not all calculators have a percentage key. I think of percent as per cent, or per 100. You can always multiply by 100 to get the percentage.

For example, 0.23 as a percent would be 0.23 x 100 or 23%.

Good luck.

To turn 1/3 to a percentage is divide 100 by 3 and the answer is 33 and 1/3 percent. To get that you 1/3 x100/1=100/3 then you divide 3 into 100 which equals 33 1/3 percent

### How to convert percent to fraction

1% = 1/100

So in order to convert percent to fraction, divide the percent by 100% and reduce the fraction.

For example 56% is equal to 56/100 with gcd=4 is equal to 14/25:

56% = 56/100 = 14/25

- Divide the percent by 100 to get decimal number.
- Count the number of digits (d) to the right of the decimal point of the decimal number.Example: 2.56 has 2 digits to the right of the decimal point, so d=2.
- Calculate the factor (f) for making the decimal number an integer:
*f*= 10*to power d*

Example:

*f*= 10 power 2 = 100

- Multiply and divide the decimal number x by the factor f:
*x***f*/*f*=*y*/*f*

Example:

2.56 * 100 / 100 = 256 / 100

- Find the greatest common divisor (gcd) of the fraction.
Example:

gcd(256,100) = 4

- Reduce the fraction by dividing the numerator and denominator by the gcd value:
Example:

256 / 100 = (256/4) / (100/4) = 64/25

1% = 1/100

So in order to convert percent to fraction, divide the percent by 100% and reduce the fraction.

For example 56% is equal to 56/100 with gcd=4 is equal to 14/25:

56% = 56/100 = 14/25

An item costs 46.79 after 20% was taken off the original price so:
x-.2x = 46.79
.8x = 46.79
x = 58.49

A percentage increase from a value a to a value b is defined as

Percent increase=(b-a)/a*100 percent.

In your case it is (200-70)/70=1.857. Multiply this number by 100 and append the percent symbol. Thus increase=185.7 percent or about 186 percent.

Percent increase=(b-a)/a*100 percent.

One can express percentages as fractions. Say you have 60% and you want to change this into a fraction. you can also express this as 60/100 because all percentages are are parts of 100. So to change a fraction into a percent you would just convert the fraction into a decimal by dividing (3/4 = .75). Then to get the percentage you just multiply the decimal by 100 to get the percent. (75x100=75%

a simple way to go about finding a percent value is to divide the new number by the original number. this will in turn give a decimal value. the returned decimal value can easily be converted into a percent (out of 100) value by multiplying by 100.

ie: 2 divided by 3 = .666667, or around 67% 6 divided by 4 = 1.5 or 150%

as far as i know there is no direct function to calculate percentages built into many calculators, although a small few do in fact have that ability.

hope that helps :)

Hi. Try this steps on using your math calculator for the percentage function.

Hope This Helps

Step 1. Note that not all calculators behave the same way as far as the percentage key is concerned. Thus, test the examples in this article on your calculator. If your calculator does not have the percent key or does not behave in the way described here, don't despair - you can still use it to calculate percentages, it's just that you will have to press a few more buttons.

Step 2. Let's calculate a tip on your restaurant bill. Suppose your bill happens to be $64.35 and you would like to leave 15% tip.

Type the following into your calculator: 64.35 * 15 %

Answer: 9.6525 or $9.65 after rounding.

Most simple calculators will give an answer right here without having to press the = sign. If yours does not, press = and see if you get the right answer.

Alternatively, you can calculate this percentage by typing in

64.35 * 15 / 100 or 64.35 * 0.15

Thus, you may have observed that all that the percent key did here was division by a hundred.

Step 3. Let's calculate a grade percentage - say you got 34 out of a maximum of 40 points.

To figure out your grade percentage type in: 34 / 40 %

Answer: 85

Alternatively, without the percent key: 34 / 40 * 100

Step 4. Let's calculate a sale price on those shoes that originally cost $139, but are now discounted by 35%.

On your calculator type in: 139 - 35 % =

Answer: 90.35 or $90.35

This calculation is amazingly easy with the percent key! Alternatively, you would first have to calculate what the 35% of the $139 is and then subtract it from 139:

139 * 35 / 100 = 48.65

139 - 48.65 = 90.35

Since I don't use the percent sign. Here is instead a MUCH easier way. Divide the price you bought it for (289) by the original price (648). This gives you the percentage that 289 is with respect to 648 if you just read off the first two decimal places. When you divide one number by another it will tell you how many times they 'fit' for the purpose of explaining it. That is also essentially what a percentage is out of 100 parts. so when you divide one number by another, you will get a decimal answer, just multiply it by 100 (or just take the first two decimals) and that is percent saved (percent different). Note that if the first value is LARGER than the second, you will have a percentage of over 100%.
