# 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.

**Explanation:**

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 %

= 80%

**In short, to convert a fraction to percent, multiply the given fraction by the number 100 followed by the symbol %.**
