A. 25%

B. 30%

C. 35%

D. 40%

### Answer & Solution

**Answer:**The correct answer is

**25%**.

**Solution:**

By using Substitution we form an equation

What\ \ \ \ \ Percent\ \ \ \ \ is\ \ \ \ \ \ \frac{3}{12}

\downarrow\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \downarrow\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \downarrow\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \downarrow\

x\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \frac{1}{100}\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ =\ \ \ \ \ \ \frac{3}{12}

x\ \times\frac{1}{100}=\frac{3}{12}

x\ =\frac{3}{12}\times100

x\ =\frac{1}{4}\times100\ \ OR\ \ \frac{300}{12}

x\ =\ 25\%

**Hence, 25 percentage is 3/12.**

**Alternate Method:**

Also if the question is given like this:

**Convert 3/12 into percentage**

you can solve it in simple way. Just multiply it with 100 to convert any number in percentage.

x\ =\frac{3}{12}\times100

x\ =\frac{1}{4}\times100\ \ OR\ \ \frac{300}{12}

x\ =\ 25\%
