What is 2/4 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: 2/4 can be written as 50%.
Let's understand the conversion of a fraction to a percentage.
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 2/4 by 100/100 doesn't change its value.
2/4 = 2/4 × 100/100 = 2/4 × 100 %
= 200/4 %
= 50 %
In short, to convert a fraction to percent, multiply the given fraction by the number 100 followed by the symbol %.
Thus, 2/4 is equivalent to 50%.
