83.3%

#### Work Step by Step

In order to write a fraction as a percent, we first turn the fraction into a decimal. $5/6 \approx .833$. In order to write a decimal as a percent, we multiply by 100, so we move the decimal point two places to the right, and then we add a percent symbol. Thus, .833 becomes 83.3%.
