Methods

Converting 58% to a fraction, Step-by-Step

Step 1:

The first step to converting 58% to a fraction is re-write 58 in the form p/q where p and q both are positive integers. Since 58 is a “per-cent” (“every 100”), we can divide 58 by 100 to get:

58100\frac{58}{100}

Step 2:

Now the next and final step is to simplify the fraction (if possible) by finding similar factors and cancelling them out:

58100=2950\frac{58}{100} = \frac{29}{50}
