For example:

Convert 9/10 into a percentage. Here's what you do:

- First, you divide .9 into 10.00
- Your answer is .90. So then you just call it 90%.

**RULE:**

**All you have to do to is convert the fraction to a decimal,
then just forget about the decimal and change it to a percent
(%).**

It's really easy once you get the hang of it :)

Hope this helped!
