See the step by step solution

## Step 1. Define the concept.

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.

## Step 2. Multiply the fraction by 100.

To find the percent of the fraction, multiply the fraction by 100.

$\frac{14}{17}=\frac{p}{100}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\frac{14}{17}×100=p$

## Step 3. Simplify for p.

Further simplify the expression.

$\frac{14}{17}×100=p\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}p=82.35%$

Therefore, the fraction as a percent is $82.35%$.
