    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}

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

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