Writing Percents as Decimals
Remove the percent symbol. Then divide by 100, or just move the decimal point two places to the left. Example: 23% = 23.% = 0.23

Writing Decimals as Percents
Multiply by 100, or just move the decimal point two places to the right. Then add a percent symbol. Example: 0.36 = 0.36 = 36%

Percent and Fractions Since percents means per 100, to write p% as a fraction, use p as the numerator and 100 as a denominator. Then simplify. Example: Write 25% as a fraction Write 3 8 as a percent
