# Percentages to fractions

Change `4%` to a fraction

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`

Simplify this to

`x=1/25`

**Answer: **`x=1/25`
