Practise converting a percent to a decimal or a fraction with this worksheet.

## Convert a Percent to a Decimal or a Fraction

Do your students need additional practice writing percentages as decimals or fractions? This critical maths skill is typically introduced in Year 6 and has many real-world applications. We use percents, decimals, and fractions when calculating discounts, interest of bank accounts and loans and much more. Teach Starter has created a worksheet that your students can use to sharpen their skills of writing a percent as a decimal or a fraction.

Students will answer 10 questions asking them to convert a percentage to a decimal and then a percentage to a fraction. There are two word problems that put this skill into practice.

An answer page is included with your download to make marking fast and easy!
