How can we convert decimals to percentages and
fractions?
To convert decimals to percentages we multiply
by 100.
So, 0.6
60
Remember, when we multiply by 100 we move the
decimal point 2 places to the right.
5
How can we convert a percentage to a fraction?
• Per cent means out of 100
• 25 25 out of 100 25/100
• We can then cancel this fraction down, so,
dividing the numerator and denominator by 25
gives us

1/4

How can we convert a percentage to a decimal?
• Divide by 100

25/100 0.25
So, 25 is the same as
REMEMBER WHEN WE DIVIDE BY 100 WE MOVE THE
DECIMAL POINT 2 PLACES TO THE LEFT

How can we convert fractions to decimals and
percentages?
• If we divide the numerator by the denominator we
get a decimal

So, ¼ 1 divided by 4
0.25
As a percentage, ¼ 0.25 25

10 of 260

Harder percentages
We can use our answers for 10 and 5 of any
number to find further percentages
So, if 10 of 620
62
And 5 of 620
31
Then 15 will equal 10 5
62 31

What would 20 of 620 be?
124
And 35 of 620?

Extension
As a decimal, a fraction, and a percentage are
all different ways of writing the same thing, we
can sometimes make a calculation easier by using
an equivalent form instead of the decimal,
fraction or percentage given.
Example 1.
20 of 35. As 20 is 1/5, this is the same as 1/5
x 35 1/7
Example 2.
0.3 x 340. As 0.3 is 30, this is the same as 30
of 340. 10 of 340 is 34. So, 30 of 340 3 x 34
102
Example 3.
3/25 of 40. As 3/25 is 0.12, this is the same as
0.12 x 40 4.8
16
Rewrite the following using an alternative to the
percentage, decimal or fraction given. Then work
a) 20 of 75 b) 2/25 of 60 c) 25 of 19 d)60 of 550
e) 3/20 of 90 f) 0.5 x 64 g) 3/5 of 7 h) 0.4 x 270
i) 75 of 44 j) 0.333 x 180
