Hint: To express given paisa as a percent of given rupee we will first convert the rupee into paise. Then we will divide the paisa given by the rupee we converted into paisa and multiply it by 100 to get the percentage in them. Finally we will add the percentage sign and get our desired answer.

Complete step by step answer:
We have to express 65 paisa as a percent of Rs5.
Firstly we will convert Rs.5 into paise as follows:
As we know
So we get the below value,
  & Rs.5=100\times 5 \\
 & \therefore Rs.5=500paise \\
Now we will express 65 paise as a percent of Rs.5 which is equal to 500 paise as below:
  & \dfrac{65}{500}\times 100 \\
 & \Rightarrow \dfrac{65}{5} \\
 & \Rightarrow 13\% \\
So we get the percent as $13\%$
Hence 65 paise can be expressed as a $13\%$ of Rs5.

Note: Money consists of rupee and paise and we require money to buy things. 100 paise makes one rupee. It is necessary that we convert both the values given in one unit before applying any formula to them. We could have converted the paise into rupees for making the unit the same and still would have gotten the same answer. Percentage is a number or a ratio that can be expressed as a fraction of 100. It is a dimensionless number as it has no dimension. Percentage can be expressed in a decimal or fraction form and it is used in many topics of mathematics. When we have to find the percent of a number we divide the number by whole and multiply it by 100.
