You should know what fractions look like/how much they are equal to.

The easiest way to represent a fraction is to draw a pie.

This is the pie I used to help me answer these questions. It's divided into eighths.

For

**B**you'll have to convert your fraction into percent. You can do this 2 ways [for both you'll either have to divide or multiply, and whatever you do to the top you**MUST**do it to the bottom/vice versa]:The

*first way*to do this is take the denominator and try to make it into 100 [multiply it by whatever number will make it into a 100, or divide if the denominator is more than 100]. Again, what you do to the top you must to the bottom [vice versa]! if you do this correctly, you then take the numerator and add a percent sign to it [ex: 10%]. Show your work!The

*second way*to do this if your denominator cannot be multiplied or divided evenly is to first convert it into a decimal [see How to do**C**] after that you multiply the denominator by 100 [percents are*always*out of 100], then the numerator by 100 and you will get your answer [which*may*have since you couldn't multiply/divide it evenly]. Take the numerator add a percent sign to it. Show your work!For

**C**you'll have to convert your fraction into a decimal. There is one way to do this. Remember, what you do to the top you do to the bottom!*always*! it's a**MUST**! [vice versa].All you have to do is take your denominator and divide it by itself [ex: if the denominator is an 8 then you must divide it by 8]. You should get a 1 and always a 1 [decimals are

*out of 1!]. '***always***What you do to the top you must do it to the bottom [vice versa]*' divide the numerator by it's denominator! [ex: The denominator is 8 and the numerator is 3. So you divide 3 by 8.]. There, now you have your decimal! [ex: 0.375 over 1].
Good job Mikaela! I really like how you took your time to organize your pictures and your paragraphs. Well done!
