Answer: 75% is written as 3/4 as a fraction in its simplest form.
Let us convert 75% into a fraction and then we will reduce it to its simplest form.
Step 1: Convert 75% into a fraction form:
75% = 75/100
Step 2: Find the GCF or the greatest common factor of 75 and 100.
Here, 25 is the GCF
Step 3: Divide the numbers by the GCF to simplify the fraction and reduce it to its simplest form.
⇒ (75 ÷ 25) /(100 ÷ 25) = 3/4
Thus, 75% is written as 3/4 as a fraction in its simplest form.
