PGLGREG is this weeks WINNER. CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

RIDDLE: 75% can be written as 3/4. How would 58 1/3% be written as a fraction (when reduced to the lowest denominator)?

ANSWER: 7/12. The easiest way to do this? 58 1/3% is 58.333.. out of 100. Multiply both the denominator and numerator by three to make them both whole numbers, and you have 175/300. Now just reduce this.
