How to convert a decimal into percentage?

We will follow the following steps for converting a decimal into a percentage:

**Step I:** Obtain the number
in decimal form.

**Step II: **Multiply the
number in decimal form by 100 and put percent
sign (%)

**Note:**
When we multiply the decimal number by 100, then we need to shift the decimal
point two places to the right (add zeros if necessary).

**I. Express each of the following decimal as percent:**

(i) 0.8 = 0.8 × 100 % = 80 %

(ii) 1.2 = 1.2 × 100 % = 120 %

(iii) 7.1 = 7.1 × 100 % = 710 %

(iv) 10.1 = 10.1 ×
100 % = 1010 %

(v) 31.3 = 31.3 × 100 % = 3130 %

(vi) 123.7 = 123.7 × 100 % = 12370 %

(vii) 101.9 = 101.9 × 100 % = 10190 %

**II. Conversion of decimal into percent:**

(i) 0.29 = 0.29 × 100 % = 29 %

(ii) 0.25 = 0.25 × 100 % = 25 %

(iii) 0.01 = 0.01 × 100 % = 1 %

(iv) 0.51 = 0.51 × 100 % = 51 %

(v) 13.01 = 13.01 × 100 % = 1301 %

(vi) 201.17 = 201.17 × 100 % = 20117 %

(vii) 100.11 = 100.11 × 100 % = 10011 %

**III. Convert the following decimal into a percentage:**

(i) 0.083 = 0.083 × 100 % = 8.3 %

(ii) 0.225 = 0.225 × 100 % = 22.5 %

(iii) 0.001 = 0.001 × 100 % = 0.1 %

(iv) 0.003 = 0.003 × 100% = 0.3 %

(v) 0.107 = 0.107 × 100 % = 10.7 %

(vi) 1.037 = 1.037 × 100 % = 103.7 %

(vii) 21.275 = 21.275 × 100 % = 2127.5 %
