Help your students prepare for their Maths GCSE with this free percentages to fractions worksheet of 30 + questions and answers
Percent means out of 100 and so to convert a percentage to a fraction, we put the percentage as the numerator and 100 as the denominator of the fraction. For example, 47% is equal to 47 divided by 100. 47% is the same as 47 hundredths.
Once we have written the fraction, we can simplify it until it is in its simplest form. Percentages greater than 100% can still be written as fractions – this will lead to an improper fraction which could then be written as a mixed number. If the percentage is a decimal, the numerator and denominator of the fraction will need to be multiplied to make the numerator a whole number.
Looking forward, students can then progress to additional fractions, decimals and percentages worksheets and number worksheets, for example a multiplying and dividing decimals worksheet or a subtracting fractions worksheet.
There will be students in your class who require individual attention to help them succeed in their maths GCSEs. In a class of 30, it’s not always easy to provide.
