To convert your percent to a fraction you have to divide the numerator (20) with the denominator (40) then you come up with a decimal number and you multiple that decimal number by 100 to get your percent.
- The percent sign didn't just come about it was made because the slanted line can represent a 1 and the two dots on the sides form two 0's which makes the the number 100 . And the present sign also looks like a division sign and another way to write division sign is a line above your number .
