Changing Percent to Decimal

To convert a percentage to a decimal, simply divide the percentage by 100. A simple way to do this is to move the decimal two places to the left. Whenever you see a number, there is an implied decimal there, even if it is not shown. Take the following percentage: 59% Though there is no visible decimal, there is assumed to be one after the ones place, which in this example is valued at 9. So it can be rewritten as 59.0%. Now you can move the decimal two places to the left to get your answer which is .59
