1-105.

Rewrite each fraction below as an equivalent fraction and as a percent.

1. $\frac { 5 } { 20 }$

Can you reduce this fraction?

What is a common factor of both $5$ and $20$?

A percent is a portion out of $100$. Use the multiplicative identity to determine an equivalent fraction out of $100$.

1. $\frac { 9 } { 25 }$

Refer to part (a).

$\frac{18}{50} \text{ or } 36 \%$

1. $\frac { 9 } { 6 }$

Reduce this fraction to find an equivalent fraction. Then find an equivalent fraction out of $100$ to get the percent.
