## How to Convert Percentage to Ratio in Excel: 4 Easy Ways

Here, we have the following dataset containing the mark sheets of some students. **Scores** are given in percentage value. You can convert these percentage values to **Ratios **by using the following methods.

### 1. Using Combination of Excel SUBSTITUTE & TEXT Functions

In the first method, you can use the **SUBSTITUTE** and **TEXT** functions to convert percentage values to ratios. Here, we will use the **SUBSTITUTE** function to substitute the **divider (/)** with the **ratio (:)**. The **TEXT** function will help to give the format.

**Steps:**

- To begin with, select any cell to place your resultant value.
- In the cell,
**D5**type the following formula.

`=SUBSTITUTE(TEXT(C5,"?/??"),"/",":")`

**Formula Breakdown**

**TEXT(C5,”?/??”)—–>**The**TEXT**function will format the selected value using a**divider**.**Output: “65/97”**

**SUBSTITUTE(TEXT(C5,”?/??”),”/”,”:”)—->**becomes**SUBSTITUTE(“65/97″,”/”,”:”)—–>**The**SUBSTITUTE**function will replace the**divider**with**Output: 65:97**

- Press
**ENTER**to get the**ratio**.

- Now, drag down the
**Fill Handle**tool to**AutoFill**the formula for the rest of the cells.

- Finally, values are now converted into
