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.
