Percentage into Decimal

We know that percentage represents parts per hundred. So, any number written as percent is a fraction with 100 as its denominator. We write the number as the numerator of a fraction and 100 in the denominator. The symbol % is not written in the fraction form. So, 75% is written as \(\frac{75}{100}\) = 0.75.


How to convert a given percentage into decimal?

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

Step I: Obtain the percentage which is to be converted into decimal

Step II: Remove the percentage sign (%) and divide it by 100.

Step III: Express the fraction in the decimal form

Remember: Remove % sign and move the decimal two places to the left.

1. Express each of the following percentage as decimals:

(i) 23 % = 23/100 = 0.23

(ii) 16 % = 16/100 = 0.16

(iii) 47 % = 47/100 = 0.47

(iv) 1 % = 1/100 = 0.01

(v) 25 % = 25/100 = 0.25

Note: Decimal shifts by 2 places to the left.


2. Express each of the following decimal percentage as decimals:

(i) 1.75 % = 1.75/100 = (1.75 × 100)/(100 × 100) = 175/10000 = 0.0175

(ii) 7.5 % = 7.5/100 = (7.5 × 10)/(100 × 10) = 75/1000 = 0.075

(iii) 31.5 % = 31.5/100 = (31.5 × 10)/(100 × 10) = 315/1000 = 0.315

(iv) 0.18 % = 0.18/100 = (0.18 × 100)/(100 × 100) = 18/10000 = 0.0018

(v) 231.2 % = 231.2/100 = (231.2 × 10)/(100 × 10) = 2312/1000 = 2.312


3. Express the percentage as fraction and in decimal form.

4. Express each of the following fraction percentage as decimals:

(i) 4/5 % = 0.8 % = 0.8/100 = (0.8 × 10)/(100 × 10) = 8/1000 = 0.008

(ii) 9/20 % = 0.45 % = 0.45/100 = (0.45 × 100)/(100 × 100) = 45/10000 = 0.0045

(iii) 1/80 % = 0.0125 % = 0.0125/100 = (0.0125 × 10000)/(100 × 10000) = 125/1000000 = 0.000125

(iv) 13/50 % = 0.26 % = 0.26/100 = (0.26 × 100)/(100 × 100) = 26/10000 = 0.0026

(v) 44/5 % = 8.8 % = 8.8/100 = (8.8 × 10)/(100 × 10) = 88/1000 = 0.088
