I think you mean how do you change it to a decimal and then two a fraction. This is a mixed number. Change it to an improper fraction. 33 1/3% = 100/3 percent. Move the decimal over two places (divide by 100) and you then you have 1/3. Of course, .33 1/3 is the decimal. Same way, change 66 2/3 % to a fraction. Change to an impropper fraction which is 200/3%. Move the decimal over two places (divide by a hundred) and you have 2/3. The decimal is /66 2/3.
