• 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.

• 300 over 9

• exactly 1/3
