1/16 = 6.4% (6.25%)

2/3 = 66.2% (66.6%)

6/16 = 36.24% (37.5%)

5/8 = 32.0% (62.5%)

So, the way I worked these out is as following, I'll show you one example of how I got these incorrect answers.

2/3, 3 divided by 100, so 3 goes into 10, 3 times remainder 1 put the 1 ontop of the second 0 and it becomes 10 and 3 goes into 10, 3 times remainder 1.

So I've got 33.1 now I times 33.1 with the top number of the fraction which is 2, 33.1 x 2 = 66.2%?

Any idea where I'm going wrong here? Thanks.
