What is 40 as a fraction


To write a fraction in its simplest form means that the numerator and denominator can no longer be divided by the same whole number exactly or evenly.

Answer: The value of 40% as a fraction in simplest form is 2 / 5.


Let us convert 40 % into a fraction in the simplest form

Step 1: Convert 40% to a fraction form by dividing it by 100.

40% = 40 / 100

Step 2: Find the GCF or the greatest common factor of 40 and 100.

Here, 20 is the GCF

Step 3: Divide the numbers by the GCF to simplify fraction and reduce to its simplest form.

⇒ (40 ÷ 20) / (100 ÷ 20) =  2 / 5

Thus, 40% as a fraction in simplest form is 2 / 5.
