How to Convert Numbers to Percentages?

Answer

To convert whole numbers to percentages, first determine the number that is being converted. For example, if you want to determine the percentage of correct answers on a test of 40 questions, where 30 questions were correct, first write the numbers as a fraction. The number that is to be converted will be the numerator on the top (30) and the total number will be the denominator on the bottom (40). Next, divide 30 by 40 and the answer will be .75. You would then multiply .75 by 100 to get 75, which would then be written as 75%.
