Explain the difference between 1/4 of a quantity and 1/4% of a quantity

well 1/4 is = 0.25 that is just a point or a number
but 1/4% is 0.25%
than that's just a percentage which is out of 100%. 
I don't understand the first part of your question.
1/4 (0.25) of a quantity is 1 out of 4. You might eat 1/4 of a whole pizza at a meal.
1/4% (0.0025) of a quantity is 25 parts of 10,000 or 1 part of 400. If you ate 1/4% of a pizza, you might get one small piece of pepperoni.
