Help your students prepare for their Maths GCSE with this free converting fractions to percentages worksheet of 44 questions and answers
Percentages fractions and decimals are different formats for representing a part of a whole.
To convert a percentage to a fraction we can write the percentage as the numerator of the fraction and write the denominator as 100 (as percent means out of 100). We usually give fractions in their simplest form and so we need to simplify any fraction by cancelling common factors of the numerator and denominator.
To convert a percentage to a fraction we can use two different methods. One method is to find an equivalent fraction with a denominator of 100 which will give us the percentage as the numerator. Alternatively we could divide the numerator by the denominator, giving us the equivalent decimal, and then multiply by 100 to get the percentage.
Looking forward, students can then progress to additional number worksheets, for example a fractions worksheet or a rounding worksheet.
