How to Transform a Percentage into a Fraction:

1. Take the percentage and divide it by 100 to derive a decimal.
2. Determine the count of digits (let's label it "d") present after the decimal point in this number. For instance, with 2.56, there are 2 digits following the decimal, so d=2.
3. Work out the factor (denoted as "f") that will turn your decimal into a whole number.

1. f = 10d

Example:

f = 102 = 100

2. Multiply and divide the decimal number x by the factor f:

x × f / f  =  y / f

Example:

2.56 × 100 / 100 = 256 / 100

3. Find the greatest common divisor (gcd) of the fraction.

Example:

gcd(256,100) = 4

4. Reduce the fraction by dividing the numerator and denominator by the gcd value:

Example:

256 / 100 = (256/4) / (100/4) = 64/25

#### Example

One percent is equal to one hundredth:

1% = 1/100

So in order to convert percent to fraction, divide the percent by 100% and reduce the fraction.

For example 56% is equal to 56/100 with gcd=4 is equal to 14/25:

56% = 56/100 = 14/25
