How to Convert a Decimal to a Percent
To convert a decimal or number to a percentage, simply multiply it by 100 and add the percent symbol (%).
An even simpler method for turning a decimal into a percentage is to move the decimal two places to the right and add a percent symbol.
- 0.35 = 0.35 * 100 = 35%
- 1.25 = 1.25 * 100 = 125%
- -0.1234 = -0.1234 * 100 = -12.34%
How to Convert a Percent to a Decimal or Number
To convert a percent to a decimal or number, remove the percent symbol (%) and divide it by 100.
Removing the percent symbol and moving the decimal two places to the left is an even faster way to turn a percent into a decimal or number.
- 25% = 25 / 100 = 0.25
- 150% = 150 / 100 = 1.5
- -12.34% = 12.34 / 100 = -0.1234
