Express 22 percent as a fraction in its simplest form.
00:00:08.510 --> 00:00:10.850
So here’s the process we need to go through.
00:00:11.320 --> 00:00:20.400
Before we can write 22 percent as a fraction in simplest form, we first need to convert 22 percent into a fraction.
00:00:20.860 --> 00:00:25.020
And then after that, we’ll find that fraction’s simplest form.
00:00:26.760 --> 00:00:30.270
How do we find 22 percent as a fraction?
00:00:32.310 --> 00:00:36.570
We write the percent value as a fraction out of 100.
00:00:38.740 --> 00:00:43.770
22 percent written as a fraction is 22 over 100.
00:00:45.560 --> 00:00:50.320
Now I need to find 22 over 100 in its simplest form.
00:00:53.160 --> 00:00:58.100
You noticed that both the numerator and the denominator are divisible by two.
00:01:00.810 --> 00:01:06.070
We can reduce 22 over 100 into 11 over 50.
00:01:07.950 --> 00:01:11.470
Then we ask, can 11 over 50 be reduced?
00:01:13.130 --> 00:01:17.060
No, 11 over 50 is already in its simplest form.
00:01:19.070 --> 00:01:24.430
22 percent as a fraction in its simplest form is 11 over 50.
