Move the decimal point two places to the left.
A shortcut would be like 0.03. the '3' does not change so it's 3% since it's not over 100
When converting a percent to a decimal you don't necessarily move the decimal point. It has nothing to do with it.
Move the decimal point two places to the left. It is the same as dividing by 100.
Because you are dividing by 100.
Divide by 100
You could call it writing a number in different forms.
You move the decimal point over two places because a percent means per 100 so therefore you move the decimal point over to the hundredth place
writing percents always depends on what you are taking the percent of. If you are trying to find the percent of 1.97 out of 100 then it is 1.97% If you have any two numbers and you want to know the percent, you divide the numbers and the answer will give you a decimal. You then take that decimal and move the decimal place over to spots to the right and that is your percent.
70.8 percent percent as a decimal is 0.708.
