Calculation to express 35/50 as a percentage

Method #1

There are two different methods in which we will learn to convert a given fraction to a percentage and both of the steps are easy and helpful for you to understand.

Step 1

You have to adjust the value of the numerator and the denominator such that you can get a hundred in the denominator. To do so you have to divide 100 by the denominator which makes it 100÷50

Hence,

100÷50 = 2

    \[ \frac{100}{50}=2 \]

Step 2

Now you need to multiply the obtained result with both the numerator and the denominator to balance the results.

( 35×2)/(50×2)= 70/100

    \[ \frac{(35\times2)}{(50\times2)}=\frac{70}{100} \]

Hence the required result is 70% which is the converted percentage value of 35/50.
