express each percent as a fraction in simplest form 24 percent with 100 as the denominator

Every percent has 100 in the denominator so it is pretty easy.

25% = $\frac{25}{100}$

now to put it in simplest form you devide both the top and bottom by 25 so you get:

$\frac{1}{4}$

not 25 percent but 24 percent with a deneminator of 100 what is the simplest form as a fraction

sorry about that. So you will have $\frac{24}{100}$

Then you can simplify by deviding by 4 so you have $\frac{6}{25}$
