# Represent 25% as a fraction and decimal.

Fractions are numbers that have two parts: a numerator and a denominator. They have many applications and are very useful in calculations. Decimals are those numbers that lie between two whole numbers.

## Answer: 25% can be represented as 1/4 in fraction form, and 0.25 in decimal form.

Let's understand the solution step by step.

**Explanation:**

To represent 25% in decimals, first, we write it as 25/100.

Now, since the denominator is 100, we place the decimal points two places before 25, that is, 0.25.

To represent 25% as a fraction, we follow the steps:

**Step 1:** We represent the given number in percentage as a fraction by dividing it by 100.

Hence, we write 25% as 25/100.

**Step 2:** Simplify the fraction by canceling the common factors of numerator and denominator.

Now, 25% can be written as 25 / 100.

On Simplifying the fraction above:

25 / 100 = 1 / 4 [Dividing numerator and denominator by their GCF, that is, 25]

### Therefore, 25% can be represented as 1/4 in fraction form, and 0.25 in decimal form.
