# What is 1/16 as a percent

Converting a fraction to percent means converting the whole part into 100 and find how many are considered out of 100.

## Answer: 1/16 can be written as 6.25 percentage.

Let's understand the conversion of a fraction to a percentage.

**Explanation:**

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. Since 100/100 = 1, multiplying 1/16 by 100/100 doesn't change its value.

Therefore, 1/16 = 1/16 × 100/100

= 100/16 %

= 6.25 %

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