- Converting Percentages to Decimals

A decimal is a number that contains a dot (point) between two numbers.

The dot is used to separate a whole part from a fractional part.

The part that lies to the **left** side of the decimal is the **whole part**.

The part that lies to the **right** side of the decimal is the **fractional part**.

for example,

2.43 contains 2 wholes and 43 hundredths.

We convert the given decimal into a fraction, and then the fraction into a percentage.

The example cards are used to gain a better understanding.

Let’s understand the **Multiplier** method.

We multiply the given decimal number by 100.

For example,

2.34

2.34 x **100** = 234.00 = **234%**

**Remember: **When a decimal multiplies by 100, the point shifts **2 steps right.**

The example cards are used to gain a better understanding.

A percentage is a part out of 100.

To convert a percentage into a decimal, we follow the steps given below.
