How to Convert between Percents and Decimals

It is easy to convert percents to decimals and decimals to percents. For example, to convert a percent to a decimal, you drop the percent sign (%) and move the decimal point two places to the left. That’s all there is to it. Remember that in a whole number, the decimal point comes at the end. For example,

2.5% = 0.025

4% = 0.04

36% = 0.36

111% = 1.11

To convert a decimal to a percent, you move the decimal point two places to the right and add a percent sign (%):

0.07 = 7%

0.21 = 21%

0.375 = 37.5%
