25% means the same as 25%2F100 which reduces to 1%2F4 All three mean the same thing. 1. Twenty-five percent of a piece of pie. 2. Twenty-five one hundredths of a piece of pie. 3. One fourth of a piece of pie. All those mean exactly the same thing. The easy way to divide by 100 is to move the decimal two places to the left. 25% means 25.% [The decimal is invisible). Move the invisible decimal two places left and make it visible, take away the % symbol and you have .25, which is the same thing as 25% and also the same thing as 25%2F100 which is also the same thing as 1%2F4.
