What is the method for finding out what percent one fraction is of another fraction. For instance 4/5 is what percent of 1/9? I am in the 4th grade. Hi,Start by trying the same question with whole numbers rather than fractions. For example 20 is what percent of 50? I would do this in two steps FirstThe first step is where is a fraction. You can make the equation above true by taking the fraction to be 20/50 = 2/5. Thus The second step is to change 2/5 to a percent. But a percent is just a fraction with 100 in the denominator so the second step is to complete the equation 5 times 20 is 100 thus multiply 2 times 20 to get 40. Hence Thus Now try fractions. Step 1. This time is 3/10. Step 2. Thus Your problem was (4/5 is larger than 1/9 so the answer will be more than 100%.) Try it. I got Penny
