In this worksheet, students convert the given percentages into their fraction equivalents, giving answers in their lowest terms. Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Number: Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Curriculum subtopic:   Recognise Percentages

Difficulty level:   ### QUESTION 1 of 10

Percentages are simply another way of expressing hundredths.

"Percent" means "out of a hundred."

So 1% = 1/100

10% = 10/100 = 1/10 when we reduce the fraction to its lowest terms

20% = 20/100 = 2/10 = 1/5

43% = 43/100

Remember that 50% and 5% are very different:

50% = 50/100 = 1/2

5% = 5/100 = 1/20
