How to Convert a Percent to a Decimal
Divide a percent value by 100 and remove the percent sign to convert from a percent to a decimal.
- Example: 50% becomes 50/100= 0.50
- Example: 87.5% becomes 5/100= 0.875
The shortcut method to get the decimal by converting from a percentage is by removing the percentage sign and shifting the decimal point – 2 places to the left.
