Given:16%
move the decimal place from the right to the left.
= .16
this is read as sixteen hundreths
=16/100
reduce then to the lowest term...
find their GCF (greatest Common Factor) which is 4.
divide the numerator 16 by 4
=4
divide then 100 by 4
=25
=4/25 is the simplest form.

Change 16% in to 16/100 because percent means per 100. Then get the name of 1. Both 16 and 100 can be divided by 4 so, the simplest form will be 4/25
