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.
the 2 is in the “tenths place” so the fraction for 0.2 is 2/10. you can also reduce it to 1/5 by dividing the numerator (top) and the denominator (bottom) by 2.
55 is the 10th Fibonacci number and a triangular number (the sum of the consecutive numbers 1 to 10). It is the largest Fibonacci number to also be a triangular number. In base 10, it is a Kaprekar number.
There is not much that can be done to figure out how to write .48 as a fraction, except to literally use what the decimal portion of your number, the .48, means. Since there are 2 digits in 48, the very last digit is the "100th" decimal place. So we can just say that .48 is the same as 48/100.
Since a percent can be written as a decimal by moving the decimal point two places to the left, a decimal can be written as a percent by moving the decimal point two places to the right. For example, to write 0.4 as a percent, move the decimal point two places to the right to get 40. So 0.4 can be written as 40%.

To convert 11/20 to a decimal, first find a fraction that is equivalent to 11/20 that has a denominator of 100, so multiply both the numerator and denominator by 5, to get 55/100. Next, read the fraction as "55 hundredths", which can be written as 0.55.
To convert 0.55 to a decimal, we multiply by 100. When we do this we get 55%. NOTE: The decimal .555 is equivalent to 55.5%. To convert a percent to a decimal, we divide by 100.
Explanation: 8 divided by 25 is dividing the numerator of the fraction 825 by the denominator 25. 0.32 is 825 in decimal form because fractions are converted into decimal form by dividing the numerator by the denominator.
The given decimals are taken to the tenths, hundredths, thousandths, or ten-thousandths places, and the resulting fractions or mixed numbers must sometimes be reduced to lowest terms. For example, the decimal 0.4 means 4 tenths, or 4/10, which reduces to 2/5.
Steps: Divide the top of the fraction by the bottom, Then multiply the result by 100 and read off the answer !
Converting a fraction to a decimal. To change a fraction to a decimal, you divide the top number by the bottom number (divide the numerator by the denominator). Some decimals will terminate (end) like the example above, but many will not.
Converting from a decimal to a percentage is done by multiplying the decimal value by 100. Example: 0.10 becomes 0.10 x 100 = 10% Example: 0.675 becomes 0.675 x 100 = 67.5% The short way to convert from decimal to percent is to move the decimal point 2 places to the right and add a percent sign.
To calculate the percentage increase: First: work out the difference (increase) between the two numbers you are comparing. Then: divide the increase by the original number and multiply the answer by 100. If your answer is a negative number then this is a percentage decrease.
Multiply the cost of an item or service by the sales tax in order to find out the total cost.
- Make sure you put the sales tax into decimal form. You do this by taking the percentage and sliding the decimal point two places to the left:
- Example: $60 (item cost) x .075 (sales tax) = $4.5 total sales tax.
The average fee at the national tax service firms H&R Block and Liberty Tax Service is $147 per return and $191 per return, respectively, according the firms' annual reports (information for Jackson Hewitt wasn't available, but it should be in that range).
The standard deduction for single taxpayers and married couples filing separately is $6,350 in 2017, up from $6,300 in 2016; for married couples filing jointly, the standard deduction is $12,700, up $100 from the prior year; and for heads of households, the standard deduction is $9,350 for 2017, up from $9,300.
Tax season is rapidly approaching, and taxpayers across the nation will soon look for any tax breaks they can find. Claiming dependent exemptions is a smart way to reduce your taxable income, because for each exemption, you get a $4,050 reduction on the 2016 tax return you'll file early in 2017.
In 2017, the income limits for all tax brackets and all filers will be adjusted for inflation and will be as follows (Table 1). The top marginal income tax rate of 39.6 percent will hit taxpayers with taxable income of $418,400 and higher for single filers and $470,700 and higher for married couples filing jointly.
