35 percent means a number less than 1, which is shown to the LEFT of the decimal place. But you have 35 one-hundredths (per cent means "for each 100") of 1. That is shown to the RIGHT of the decimal place, in the space for one-tenths and one-hundredths.

A non-negative number less than 1 is..... 0! So you write 0. after you add the decimal point. Now you have how many one-hundredths to place in the space for each one-tenth and each one-hundredth? 35!!!!! That is 3 one-tenths and 5 one-hundredths.

So your decimal is 0.35, which means 35%.

3.5 as a decimal would be .035 because you would have to move the decimal two times to the left which would give you your answer (.035) but if u wanted .o35 as a percent you would move the decimal two times to the right and get 3.5%
