Hint:

 Fractions are represented as a numerical value, which defines a part of a whole. A fraction can be a portion or section of any quantity out of a whole, where the whole can be any number, a specific value, or a thing. Let us understand this concept using an example. The following figure shows a pizza that is divided into 8 equal parts. Now, if we want to express one selected part of the pizza, we can express it as 1/8 which shows that out of 8 equal parts, we are referring to 1 part.

The correct answer is: 30%


    Rain is falling 3 out of every 10 days = 3 over 10
    To convert fraction into percent multiply by 100 and add symbol %
    3 over 10 cross times 100 equals space 30 straight percent sign
    Thus, on 30% of days, the rain did not fall.
