### How do you Convert 26.2 percent into a fraction?

You first have to convert it into a decimal, which you do by
moving the decimal place 2 places to the left: 26.2% = .262 Then
you have to see which place the decimal is in. (†he thousandths)
Read the decimal out load: two hundred sixty-two thousandths.
Sounds like a fraction, right? That's cause it is one! Then you
make the fraction in simplest form, which is 131 over 500. That's
your answer! By the way, shouldn't you have learned this in school?
I am in only 5th grade and know this!!

### How do you turn a decimal into a fraction for 5th graders?

You have to think about your decimal places. the first decimal
place after the point is the tenths, then the hundredths, then the
thousandths. So, if your decimal number has two numbers after the
point like 0.25, then you have 25/100. Then you make the fraction
smaller by dividing both numbers by 25 and you end up with 1/4.
