0.0002

#### Explanation:

Whenever you the see the percentage sign, it just means that you are going to have to divide your number by 100.

Therefore 0.02% is equal to 0.0002.

And just as a side note, whenever you divide by 100, you move the decimal point 2 places to the left; that is how 0.02 becomes 0.0002
