how is 3/5 written as a percent

(2) Answers

first you have to make the denominator 100, 3×20/5×20 =60/100 so your answer is 60% hope this helps.....


A "percent" is really just a fraction. Literally, it means "per hundred", and "per" means division. To convert fractions to percentages then, you just need to convert the denominator (bottom) of the fraction into 100. In your question, you have a "mixed fraction", so first you need to convert this to an "improper fraction": So to turn the denominator from a 5 to a 100, what do we have to multiply by? Well 5×20=100, so we can multiply the top and bottom of the fraction by 20: Now we have the answer: 60 %.
