# How do you convert 23% to a fraction and then to a decimal?

23%=23/100=0.23

#### Explanation:

First we have to think that the symbol  %=1/100

so that

23%=23*(1/100) this is read "twenty three percent is equal to twenty three multiplied by one divided by one hundred"

the result is the fraction $\frac{23}{100}$

Now, to convert to decimal, simply divide 23 by 100

$23 \div i \mathrm{de} 10 = 2.3$
and

$2.3 \div i \mathrm{de} 10 = 0.23$

this is the same as $23 \div i \mathrm{de} 100 = 0.23$
