# 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.

**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.

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 %.**
