how do we change 37% into a fraction -  key stage level 3 uk


Hi Andrew,

37% is already a fraction. This fraction is written using a % symbol rather than the "numerator over denominator" or "decimal fraction" notation.

Cent means 100, it comes from the Latin word centum, so

37% means "37 per 100" or "37 in every 100".

That is

37% = 37/100.
