Relationship between Decimals and Percents

Decimals to Percents: Learn

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

  • Multiply the decimal by 100 (Move the decimal point two places to the right)
  • Label the answer with the % sign

For example: Convert 0.83 to a percent.

  • Multiply 0.83 * 100 = 83
  • 83%

This procedure works because the word percent means "by hundredths" and multiplying decimals by 100 moves the hundredths place into whole percents.
