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.
