Chapter 6 - Percent - Mixed Review Exercises - Page 468: 19



Work Step by Step

In order to write a percent as a fraction, we can drop the percent sign and then divide by 100. Next, we must simplify the resulting fraction to lowest terms. 87.5%=$87.5\div100.0=\frac{87.5}{100.0}$ In this case, we must multiply the numerator and denominator by 10 to ensure that both are whole numbers. $\frac{87.5}{100.0}=\frac{87.5\times10}{100.0\times10}=\frac{875}{1000}$
