There’s a sample problem already completed, serving as a model for students to follow.

The worksheet aims to educate students on the relationship between fractions and percentages and the method of converting fractions to a base of 100 to easily transform them into percentages. This skill is crucial as it forms a foundation for understanding percentages, which are a common representation of data in real-world scenarios. Through this practice, students enhance their number sense, particularly their grasp of how fractions, decimals, and percentages are interconnected. The worksheet not only helps in reinforcing mathematical concepts but also prepares students for practical applications, such as calculating discounts, understanding statistics, and managing proportions in various academic and everyday contexts.
