Changing a Decimal to a Percentage

In order to change a decimal into a percentage simply multiply the decimal by 100. For example, .45 x 100= 45. So the answer would be 45%. You may have noticed this already, but a simple way to multiply by 100 is to move the decimal two places to the right. For example the number .32. If you move the decimal one place you multiply by 10 and the number would be 3.2. Once more and it be comes 32, which you can add the % symbol to get your final answer of 32%.
