Answer:

#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 #23/100#

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

#23 divide 10=2.3 #
and

#2.3 divide 10=0.23#

this is the same as #23 divide 100=0.23#
