    To convert from decimals to percents, you multiply the decimal by 100, which gives you the percent equivalent of the percent.

    Percent is always based off of 100%, so decimals up to the hundredths place will always be integers, and the numbers after the hundredths place will be after the decimal. The tens place in the percent will always be in the tenths place in decimal form as well.

  • Remember that "percent" means "out of 100," so we have

    #1%=0.01=1/100#.
