Question

Convert 0.2% to fraction.

  1. fraction numerator 2 over denominator 10 end fraction    
  2. fraction numerator 1 over denominator 50 end fraction    
  3. fraction numerator 2 over denominator 100 end fraction    
  4. fraction numerator 1 over denominator 500 end fraction    

Hint:

To find the answer, we have to convert 0.2% to a fraction. To convert to fraction, divide the given percentage by 100 after dropping the % symbol.  To remove the decimal point, multiply both 0.2 and 100 by 10.

The correct answer is: fraction numerator 1 over denominator 500 end fraction


    t o space c o n v e r t space p e r c e n t space t o space f r a c t i o n space d i v i d e space b y space 100 space a n d space r e m o v e space t h e space s y m b o l space percent sign
0.2 percent sign space equals space fraction numerator 0.2 over denominator 100 end fraction
M u l t i p l y space t h e space n u m e r a t o r space a n d space d e n o m i n a t o r space b y space 10 comma space t o space r e m o v e space t h e space d e c i m a l space p o i n t.
fraction numerator 0.2 over denominator 100 end fraction cross times 10 over 10 equals space 2 over 1000 comma space r e d u c e space t h i s space f r a c t i o n space b y space t a k i n g space o u t space t h e space c o m m o n space f a c t o r space
2 over 1000 equals space 1 over 500
    Thus 0.2% converted to fraction is 1 over 500.
