Before we get started in the fraction to percentage conversion, let"s go over some very quick fraction basics. Remember that a numerator is the number above the fraction line, and the denominator is the number below the fraction line. We"ll use this later in the tutorial.

You are watching: 11/16 as a percent

When we are using percentages, what we are really saying is that the percentage is a fraction of 100. "Percent" means per hundred, and so 50% is the same as saying 50/100 or 5/10 in fraction form.

So, since our denominator in 11/16 is 16, we could adjust the fraction to make the denominator 100. To do that, we divide 100 by the denominator:

100 ÷ 16 = 6.25

Once we have that, we can multiple both the numerator and denominator by this multiple:


11 x 6.25/16 x 6.25=68.75/100

Now we can see that our fraction is 68.75/100, which means that 11/16 as a percentage is 68.75%.

We can also work this out in a simpler way by first converting the fraction 11/16 to a decimal. To do that, we simply divide the numerator by the denominator:

11/16 = 0.6875

Once we have the answer to that division, we can multiply the answer by 100 to make it a percentage:

0.6875 x 100 = 68.75%

And there you have it! Two different ways to convert 11/16 to a percentage. Both are pretty straightforward and easy to do, but I personally prefer the convert to decimal method as it takes less steps.

I"ve seen a lot of students get confused whenever a question comes up about converting a fraction to a percentage, but if you follow the steps laid out here it should be simple. That said, you may still need a calculator for more complicated fractions (and you can always use our calculator in the form below).
