Write percentages as fractions

Percent-to-fraction conversions aren't too bad. This is where you use the fact that "percent" means "out of a hundred". Convert the percent to a decimal, and then to a fraction. For instance:

$60%=0.60=\frac{60}{100}$

Now you can reduce the fraction:

$\frac{60}{100}=\frac{6}{10}=\frac{3}{5}$

How do you write 97% as a fraction or whole number in simplest form?
 Solution:

Simplify your answer and write it as a proper fraction or as a whole or mixed number.
