# How do you make percent into a decimal?

usually you just put a decimal in front of the last two numbers. Lets say we had 79%. It would turn into 0.79. If we had 541,642%, it would go to 5,416.42

Another way of thinking about it is dividing the percent by 100 to convert into a decimal, and multiplying the decimal by 100 to turn it into a percent

Example

149%

149/100 = 1.49

0.269

0.269 x 100 = 26.9%

Not hard at all. To change a percent to a decimal, express the percent as a decimal and simply move the decimal to the lefttwo places:

1. 7.0% = 0.07

Easy! Just divide by 100. Example: 50% = 50/100 = 0.5
