The colored boxes represents the Percentage.

### Simplifying the Fraction

At this point, you should probably know how to simplify fractions.

So, let’s do it.

Then we can re-draw the 100 squares into 10 rectangles.

We can reduce this further, though.

So there! We already discussed how to convert percent into fraction.

### Review Converting a Fraction to a Decimal and Reducing

Just to review, to convert the percent into a fraction, we have to take the amount in percentage as the numerator and the denominator is always 100. Then reduce it as much as possible.

So if we have we could convert it into

Then reduce it and we’ll have

If we have we could convert it into

And further reduce it into

could be converted into

Then reduce it further to
