You can convert a percentage to a decimal by doing the complete opposite movement than converting a decimal to a percentage.

  • Converting Decimal to Percentage: Move two decimal places to the right.
  • Converting Percentages to Decimal: Move two decimal places to the left.

So, following the above statement of P -> D. We move two places to the left.

  • Original: 13%
  • One Place: 1.3
  • Two Places: .13

So 13% as a decimal is .13. You could also simply take the percentage and divide by 100.

13 ÷ 100 = .13
