Changing Fractions to Decimals
Some fractions are harder than others to change to a decimal without a calculator. You could also use long division if you can't figure out a way to get a power of 10 as the denominator.
Changing Fractions to Percents
There's more than one way to change a fraction to a percent. You could try to rewrite the fraction with 100 as the denominator, but this might be difficult if your denominator isn't a factor of 100. The fastest and easiest way is probably to use a calculator to change it to a decimal first and then move the decimal over 2 places to the right to change it to a percent.
