# How do you write 3/5 as a percent?

How do you write 3/5 as a percent?

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

Percent or % means out of 100 or per 100, Therefore x% can be

written as %x/100%.We can then rewrite this as:%3/5 =

x/100%%color(red)(100) * 3/5 = color(red)(100) * x/100%%300/5 =

cancel(color(red)(100)) * x/color(red)(cancel(color(black)(100)))%%60 =

x%%x = 60%%3/5 = 60/100 = 60%%

%60%%<h4

class=answerHeader>Explanation: To write a fraction as a

percent:%fraction x 100% larr 100%=100/100 =1%%=3/5 x 100%%%=(3/cancel5

x cancel100^20)%%%=60%%

Slightly different way of thinking about it!60%

or %60/100%

#### Explanation:

%color(blue)(Preamble)%A percentage is basically just another fraction.

However it is of specific format in that the bottom number (denominator) is

fixed at 100If you like; the % symbol can be compared to the function of a

unit of measurement. Just as a unit of measurement is specific in what it

means then so is %. It means %1/100%So for example:

%2%color(white)(d)->color(white)(d)

2x%color(white)(d)->color(white)(d)2x1/100color(white)(d)->color(white)(d)2/100%Note

that the multiply sign is a bit like the word of. In that for example: 2 of

6 is %6+6 =2x6=12%so 2% is 2 of percent %->1/100+1/100

=2x1/100=2/100%

%color(blue)(Answering

your question)%Given: %3/5%We need to change this in such a way that the

actual value is the same but it looks different. In that the bottom number

becomes 100.Multiply by 1 and you do not change the value. However, 1 comes

in many

forms.%color(green)(3/5color(red)(x1)color(white)(dd)->color(white)(ddd)3/5color(red)(x20/20))%%color(white)(ddddddd)->color(white)(ddd)(3x20)/(5x20)%%color(white)(ddddddd)->color(white)(dddd)60/100%
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This

is the same as

%60x1/100color(white)(d)->color(white)(d)60x%color(white)(d)->60%%
