It's a mixed fraction with a % sign.

It the same as any number with a % sign

Eg:
50% = 50/1%=50/100
2.5% = 25/10% =2.5/100 =25/1000
16 2/3% =50/3% =50/3*100

It will be a good idea to learn up some percentage - fraction equivalents. They are quite useful.

16 2/3% is 16.67% which is 1/6.

Ummm bharatemail at first I did not wanted to chime in but I guess I am tempted to- I do not if you have some how have developed the habit of being spoon feed but it does seems so (sorry if that seems like a hardy ) but please do yourselves a favor- the question you asked was pretty basic by any standard and on top of that you did not bother to open the link provided.

All in the good intention only
