# How do you convert 125% to a fraction?

Question:i need help with my math homework... All percentages are fractions of 100. 10% = 10/100; 25% = 25/100; and so on. Since 125 is greater than 100, you might also have to convert it to a mixed number, and then you might have to reduce the fraction.

For example:

130% = 130/100 = 1 30/100 = 1 3/10 1 1/4 125/100= 5/4. You divide 125 by 25, and 100 by 25. 125%
125/100
1.25
1 1/4 I'm pretty dumb when it comes to maths.

125/100 or 12.5/10 seems obvious? Hope I'm not being totally stupid!

...or indeed 5/4 or 1 1/4 :-) A percentage means per 100...so you would put 125/100. Reduced, the fraction would be 5/4 (or 1.25). To convert any % to a fraction, just put it over 100 and reduce. So 50% = 50/100 = 1/2. 125% = 125/100 = 5/4 or 1 1/4. 100% is a whole. 25% is a fourth. So, 125% is 1 and a fourth! 1 and 25 out of 100 which is 1 and 1/4. i learned this today It is either 5/4 or 1 and 1/4 or 1.25, your pick.

As far as how it's done, simple... 125 percent implies 125 something for every 100 (one whole measure). 125 divided by 100 is 1.25 , or you can simplify the fraction to 5/4, or 1 and 1/4 125%= 125/100= 1 1/4 125% out of 100% = 125/100
= 1 & 25/100
= 1 & 1/4 125/100 = 1 25/100 = 1 1/4
You can use this with any percent, put it over 100 and continue working it out. You'll do great!! That's the same as 125/100 which is 5/4 which is also 1 1/4. Take your pickeroo.

Tammy squirmed desperately in her seat, stretching her arm up as high as she could and waving her hand wildly. "I know the answer! I know the answer!!" The teacher looked at her and burped. Well, What does % mean? It means "out of 100." Therefore
125% means 125 out of 100 or

125/100
if you reduced the fraction, say by dividing the top and bottom by a factor of 25..you would end up with

5/4

Both are the same as saying 125%. This also becomes

1 1/4

As a decimal, 125% is written as 1.25

Ok. So you know One! How about 75%

Well 75/100

reduce that by dividing top and bottom by 25..you get 3/4

is 3 quarters 75%? Sure it is. It can also be writtn as .75
as a decimal. How do you convert 125% to a fraction

First you must make the percent a decimal. to do this, you put the decimal two places to the left of the % sign. so 125% is equal to 1.25

Next you make the decimal into a fraction by putting the numbers on the right of the decimal over 100

now we have 1 25/100
when that is reduced it is equal to 1 1/4 A percentage is a fractio of 100.
125% is 125 over 100
If you make that into a mixed number, it is 1 & 25/100 1 1/4 100% is 1 and 25 = 1/4 so ur answer is 1 1/4 125% = 1.25 = 1 1/4
