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

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

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

$\displaystyle \frac{1}{4}$ - May 19th 2005, 02:19 PMpowell89math problem
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 $\displaystyle \frac{24}{100}$

Then you can simplify by deviding by 4 so you have $\displaystyle \frac{6}{25}$ - May 19th 2005, 02:35 PMpowell89math problem
