No it can't be simplified. 

41 is a prime number which means its factors are 1 and 41.  You cannot divide 100 by 41 equally, so there is no way to simplify the numerator and the denominator by the same number.

No, like has been mentioned by someone else, 41 is a prime number. You can leave it as 41/100 or convert to decimal .41 or even percent as 41%. but the fraction itself is as far as you can go.
