4 out of 5 is what percent?
Converting a fraction to percent means converting the whole part into 100 and find how many are considered out of 100.
Answer: 4 out of 5 can be written as 4/5 and equals to 50%.
Let's understand the conversion of a fraction to a percentage.
4 out of 5 can be written as 4/5.
To find the percent for this fraction, we have to find the number of parts that would be shaded out of 100.
To convert a fraction to percent, we multiply it by 100/100.
As 100/100 = 1, multiplying 4/5 by 100/100 doesn't change its value.
4/5 = 4/5 × 100/100 = 4/5 × 100%
= 400/5 %
In short, to convert a fraction to percent, multiply the given fraction by the number 100 followed by the symbol %.
