$\displaystyle 37\dfrac12\%=\dfrac{375}{1000}$. Can you reduce the above fraction to lowest terms?

The thing to remember is that "per cent" means "hundredths." Thus 37 1/2% means 37 1/2 hundredths. Place 37 1/2 over 100, and you have a fraction. Multiply numerator and denominator by 2 and you have the fraction 75/200 Divide the numerator and denominator by 25, and you end up with 3/8.

Convert from percent to common fraction. 66 2/3% Can someone please help, I have a friend that knows the answer but she can't explain how she got the answer because she just knows what the answer is without having to do any math.
