1. The correct option is (B) 1/3.
The value of fraction m/k = 1/3.

### What is percentage?

The term “percentage” comes from latin “per centum,” which implies “by the hundred.” Percentages seem to be fractions with a denominator of 100.
Calculating a percentage means determining a portion of a whole in terms of 100. A percentage can be calculated in two ways:
1. The unitary method is used.
2. By changing the fraction’s denominator to 100.
It needs to be mentioned that second method of percentage calculation is not used when the denominator does not have a factor of 100. In such cases, we employ the unitary method.
Now, according to the question;
Given that 75% of m is equivalent to k% of 25,
Formally, the above equation can be written as
75%(m) = k%(25)
or,
(75/100) × m = (k/100) × 25
Simplifying;
m/k = 25/75
m/k = 1/3.
Therefore, the value of fraction m/k is 1/3.
