#### Worksheet Overview

This activity is about changing percentages to fractions, remembering to reduce the fraction as much as possible if you can.

You can change percentages to fractions by writing the percentage over 100 (percent means out of 100)

Example 1  27% =
 27 100

Sometimes, you can simplify your fraction by dividing by the largest common factor.

Example 2  35% =
 35 100
=
 7 20
(dividing by 5)

That's all there is to it!
