Q13.
Expert-verifiedWrite each fraction as a percent. Round to the nearest tenth.
$\frac{14}{17}$
The fraction as a percent is $82.35\%$.
A percent is a ratio that compares a number to 100.
$\frac{a}{b}=\frac{p}{100}$, where $\frac{a}{b}$ is the fraction and p is the percent equivalent of the fraction.
To find the percent of the fraction, multiply the fraction by 100.
$\frac{14}{17}=\frac{p}{100}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\frac{14}{17}\times 100=p$
Further simplify the expression.
$\frac{14}{17}\times 100=p\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}p=82.35\%$
Therefore, the fraction as a percent is $82.35\%$.
