 Change `4%` to a fraction

Guide for turning percentages into fractions

Multiply both sides by `x` to get `x` on its own. (What you do to one side do to the other).

 `(100timesx)/4=(1timescancelx)/cancelx`

`(100x)/4=1` 

 

Multiply both sides by `4` to get `4` on its own.

  `(cancel4times100x)/cancel4=1times4` 

`100x=4`

 

Divide both sides by `100` to get `x` on its own.

`(cancel100x)/cancel100=4/100`

   `x=4/100`
