    Hello, foofergutierrez!

    How do you write 20\% as a fraction or mixed number?

    Drop the "%", divide 100, and simplify.

    . . 20\%\;=\;\frac{20}{100}\;=\;\frac{1}{5} . . . right?


    Write 116\frac{2}{3}\% as a fraction or a mixed number.

    . . a)\;\frac{1}{6}\qquad b)\;1\frac{1}{6}\qquad c)\;16\frac{2}{3}\qquad d)\;1\frac{5}{6}

    We are given: . 116\frac{2}{3}\%

    Drop the "%", divide by 100: . \frac{116\frac{2}{3}}{100}

    Simplify: . \frac{\frac{350}{3}}{100} \;= \;\frac{350}{300} \;= \;\frac{7}{6}\;=\;1\frac{1}{6}
