Conversion of percentages to decimal numbers

Both percentages and decimals enjoy widespread usage in science, engineering, business and finances, statistics, as well as everyday life. Conversion between percentages and decimals might be required, for example to make the comparison of two numbers, one of which is expressed as a percent and the other: as a decimal number, is easier.

Since "percent" is in fact "per cent", or "per centum", meaning "per one hundred", it is in fact just a fraction with a denominator of 100. So, 10% is just 10/100. A decimal is a different way to represent a fraction, so 10/100 would be 0.10. This also means that percent to decimal calculations are fairly easy and do not require any advanced mathematical knowledge. Despite that, it is convenient to have a calculator or an online percent to decimal converter to do the job for you.

How to convert percent to decimal

Sample task: convert 20 percent to decimal. Solution:

Formula:
% / 100 = decimal
Calculation:
20 % / 100 = 0.20 decimal
End result:
20 % is equal to 0.20 decimal

As seen above, conversion between percent and decimal numbers is fairly trivial and consist of simple division by 100. It can be done by shifting the decimal point two spaces to the left, or by using a calculator or our percent to decimal converter above.
