### How do you change a decimal into percent and fraction in lowest terms?

To express a decimal as a percent, multiply it by 100. (0.75 =

To express a decimal as a fraction, say it out loud. (0.75 =
"seventy-five hundredths" = 75/100)

numerator and the denominator and divide them both by it. (75/100 =
3*25/4*25 = 3/4)
