**Let’s understand**

**Percent **refers to a measurement indicating a portion of a whole expressed relative to 100. The term “percent” is a combination of “per,” which signifies “out of,” and “cent,” representing “100.”

For instance, when we say 40%, we’re saying 40 out of 100, which simplifies to 2/5 or 0.4.

To find percentage we use the formula **Percentage = (Part / Whole) x 100**

A **fraction** is a mathematical representation of a part of a whole or a ratio between two quantities. It can be represented as a/b, where a and b are integers (whole numbers), and b is not equal to 0.

For instance, 3/4 means three out of four equal parts or three-quarters of the whole.

A **decimal **is a numerical representation that includes a decimal point separating the whole number from the fractional part.

For instance, in the decimal number 3.14,

- The whole number part is 3.
- The fractional part is 0.14.

20 of 50 can indeed be expressed as a percentage, fraction, decimal, or ratio.

**Percentage:** 20 out of 50 can be expressed as a percentage by dividing 20 by 50 and then multiplying by 100:

Percentage = (20 / 50) x 100 = 40%

**Fraction:** The fraction representing 20 out of 50 is 20/50, which can be simplified to 2/5.

**Decimal:** To express 20 out of 50 as a decimal, divide 20 by 50:

Decimal = 20 / 50 = 0.4.

**Ratio:** The 20 out of 50 ratio can be expressed as 20:50, simplified to 2:5.

**Other similar examples**

**Example 1: **25 of 75

Percentage: (25 / 75) x 100 = 33.33…%

Fraction: 25/75 (which can be simplified to 1/3)

Decimal: 25 / 75 = 0.333…

Ratio: 25:75 (which can be simplified to 1:3)

**Example 2: **Out of 80 students, 25 scored above 90 on their exam. Express this situation as a percentage, fraction, and decimal.

Percentage: (25 / 80) * 100 = 31.25%

Fraction: 25/80 (which can be left as is)

Decimal: 25 / 80 = 0.3125

**Example 3: **In a box of 48 chocolates, 4.2 are filled with caramel. Express this situation as a percentage, fraction, and decimal.

Percentage: (4.2 / 48) x 100 = 8.75%

Fraction: 4.2/48 (which can be simplified as 21/240 or 7/80)

Decimal: 4.2 / 48 = 0.0875

**Example 4: **A pack of 30 batteries costs $15. What is the cost of one battery? Express the answer as a percentage, a fraction, and a decimal.

The cost of one battery can be found by dividing the total cost by the number of batteries.

Cost of one battery = Total cost / Number of batteries

Cost of one battery = $15 / 30 Cost of one battery = $0.5

Now, let’s express the cost of one battery in different forms.

**Percentage **= (Cost of one battery / Total cost) x 100

Percentage = ($0.5 / $15) x 100 = 3.33…%

Percentage = 3.33…%

**Fraction **= Cost of one battery / Total cost

Fraction = $0.5 / $15

Fraction = 1/30

**Decimal** = Cost of one battery / Total cost

Decimal = $0.5 / $15

Decimal = 0.0333…

*Our kid is doing much better with a higher score.**”*

**Example 5:** A box contains 24 candies and costs $12. What is the cost of one candy? Express the answer as a percentage, a fraction, and a decimal.

The cost of one candy can be found by dividing the total cost by the number of candies.

Cost of one candy = Total cost / Number of candies

Cost of one candy = $12 / 24

Cost of one candy = $0.5

**Percentage **= (Cost of one candy / Total cost) x 100

Percentage = ($0.5 / $12) x 100

Percentage = 4.166…%

**Fraction** = Cost of one candy / Total cost

Fraction = $0.5 / $12

Fraction = 1/24

**Decimal** = Cost of one candy / Total cost

Decimal = $0.5 / $12

Decimal = 0.0416…
