If it is a fraction you want as a percent, this is how you do it: NUMERATOR ÷ DENOMINATOR so it's kind of like this: if there is a 5/7, you devide 5 by 7, which is 0.72. But that's not all, when you've got the number, multiply it by a 100. 0.72x100=72. So it is 72 percent: I'll shorten it out for you: 2/8= 2÷8= 0.25 now if you want it as a percent: 0.25x100=25% :) If it is a decimal you want as a percent, this is how you do it: multiply a 100 to the decimal: 0.23x100=23% so 0.23=23% if the decimal is over the hundredths( something like 0.567) you easily know that if you multiply a 100 it is 567. but it's not 567%. it is 56.7%. Do you kind of get it? If you want your decimal to be 567%, the decimal must be 5.67. Examples: 4/10=4÷10x100=40% (try it on a calculator) 0.67=67% 78.34=7834% 2.649=264.9% a whole number: example: 7=700% because 7=7.00 and 7.00x100 is 7% I hope you understand now.
