    Welcome to Jiskha.

    To convert a fraction to a percent,

    First, divide the numerator by the denominator.
    Example: 3/4 = 0.75

    Then, multiply the decimal by 100. Or you can simply move the decimal point two places to the right.
    Example: 0.75 = 75%

    This site has more explanation.
