The way I explain how to handle a problem like this to my students is as follows.
First, look at it as being 2 separate pieces. You have the whole number 33 and the fraction 1/3.
Second, drop the percent sign entirely!
Third, convert the fraction 1/3 into a decimal.
Fourth, Add the whole number 33 to your result in step 3.
Fifth, convert the result from step 4 to a fraction.
So you’re working backwards, moving from percent to decimal, and then to fraction.

33 1/3%
convert 33 1/3 to an improper fraction
= [(33 x 3) + 1]/3
= 100/3
33 1/3% = 100/3% = 100/(3×100)= 100/300 = 1/3

33 1/3 = 33 + 1/3 = (99/3) + 1/3 = 100/3
So 33 1/3% = (100/3) / 100 = 1/3

33 1/3 also equals 33.3333 reacuring.. basically 33.33%
So to get a fraction, it would be 33.33/100 but you can’t have decimals so move the decimal to the right twice..
3333/10000
That’s the simplest form.
