  1. "percent" means per hundred
    so say you had 24%
    that would be 24 over 100
    = 24/100
    now reduce that to lowest terms
    = 6/25

    which would translate to something like 6 out of 25 people like strawberry ice-cream

  2. what if my number is in the decimals, for example %0.003

  3. same thing,
    0.003% = .003/100
    = 3/100000 , I multiplied top and bottom by 1000

    so it would be 3 out of 100,000 would be ...... (whatever)

    suppose you had 36.5%
    that would be 36.5/100 = 365/1000 = 73/200
    or 73 out of 200 .....
