## Relationship between Percents and Decimals

### Percents to Decimals: Learn

Do the following steps to convert a percent to a decimal:

- Remove the % sign
- Divide the percent by 100 (move the decimal two places to the left)

For example: Convert 83% to a decimal.

- Remove the sign: 83
- Divide 83/100 = 0.83

This procedure works because the word *percent* means "by hundredths"
and dividing by 100 produces hundredths.
