Write 35 percent as a fraction in the lowest term
35% expressed as a fraction is 35/100
To put it in lowest terms you need to find the largest common factor of 35 and 100
The only factors of 35 are 1, 35, 5 and 7
The highest factor of 35 that will divide evenly into 100 is 5
35/5

100/5
= 7/20
.
To solve this, we simply have to put the percentage over 100, since there are only 2 digits to the left of the decimal point to make this a whole number.
35% = \( \frac{35}{100} \)
We can see by looking at this that both the numerator and the denominator are divisible by 5, so we can reduce.
\( \frac{35 / 5}{100 / 5} = \frac{7}{20} \)
which is your final answer.
35% as a fraction in the lowest term would be \( \frac{7}{20} \).
