"Percent" or "%" means "out of 100" or "per 100", Therefore x% can be written as 
x100 
As a result, we can write an equation as and find the value of x: 
x100=56 
100×1100=100×56 
100×x100=5006 
x=83.3 
56=83.3%

Fractions, decimals and percents are all different ways of writing the same number.
The easiest one is: 12=0.5=0.50=50100=50%
56 can be writen as 5÷6
If you do the division you will end up with a decimal:
56=0.8333
The first two decimal places represent hundredths.
0.83333=83.33331000=83.333%

Let's quickly review some fundamentals of fractions before moving on to the conversion from fraction to percentage. Always keep in mind that the denominator is the number that comes after the fraction line and the numerator is the number that comes before it. This will be put to use later in the tutorial.
When we are using percentages, what we are really saying is that the percentage is a fraction of 100. "Percent" means per hundred, and so 50% is the same as saying 50/100 or 5/10 in fraction form.
So, since our denominator in 5/6 is 6, we could adjust the fraction to make the denominator 100. To do that, we divide 100 by the denominator:
100÷6=16.666666666667
Once we have that, we can multiple both the numerator and denominator by this multiple:
5×16.66666666676×16.6666666667=83.3333333333100
Now we can see that our fraction is 83.333%
