Converting Percentages to Decimals:

  • Decimals too can be converted to percentages and vice-versa.

  • For Example, 10% = `10/100 = 1/10` = 0.10.

How to Convert a Percent to a Decimal:

1) Divide a percent by 100 and remove the percent sign to convert from a percent to a decimal.

2) The easiest way to convert from a percentage to a decimal is by removing the percent sign and moving the decimal point 2 places to the left.

Example

Convert given percent to decimal: 1%

1% = `1/100` = 0.01.

Example

Convert given percent to decimal: 3%

3% = `3/100` = 0.03

Example

Convert given percent to decimal: 125%

125% = `125/100` = 1.25

Example

Convert given percent to decimal: 200%

200% = `200/100 = 2/1` = 2 = 2.0
