# Converting Decimals to Percentage

## Notes

### Converting Decimals to Percentage:

• Decimals too can be converted to percentages.
• Converting from a decimal to a percentage is done by multiplying the decimal value by 100 and adding %.
• The shortcut to convert from decimal to percent is to move the decimal point 2 places to the right and add a percent sign.

Example,

(i) 0.675 becomes 0.675 x 100 = 67.5%

(ii) 0.36

Multiply 0.36 by 100/100.

Since 100/100 = 1, we are only multiplying by 1 and not changing the value of our number.

0.36/1 xx 100/100 = 36/100

36/100 is 36 over 100 and means 36 per 100.

36 "per 100" means 36 "percent" or 36%.

Therefore, we have shown that

0.36 = 36%.

## Example

Convert the given decimals to percents: 0.75

0.75 = 0.75 × 100% = 75/100 xx 100% = 75%.

## Example

Convert the given decimals to percents: 0.09

0.09 = 0.09 × 100% = 9/100 = 9%.

## Example

Convert the given decimals to percents: 0.2

0.2 = 2/10 xx 100%  = 20%.
