What is a fraction for 55%?

To write this as a fraction, you'd write 55 for the numerator and 100 for the denominator, like this: 55/100. Here, 55/100 is a fraction that is equivalent to 55%. But notice that 55/100 is not in its simplest form, or lowest terms.

Similarly, you may ask, how do you write 80% as a fraction in the simplest form?

There is not much that can be done to figure out how to write .80 as a fraction, except to literally use what the decimal portion of your number, the .80, means. Since there are 2 digits in 80, the very last digit is the "100th" decimal place. So we can just say that .80 is the same as 80/100.
