Decimal: A decimal is a number written in the base-10 place-value system, which is composed of a whole number and a fraction. Decimals are used to represent numbers that are not exact, such as 3.14159, which is the decimal representation of pi.
Percent: A percent is a unit of measure that represents a fraction of 100. It is denoted by the symbol “%.” For example, 50% represents 50/100, or one half.
To convert a decimal to a percent, you can multiply the decimal by 100 and add the percent symbol “%”.
Here is the formula for converting a decimal to a percent:
decimal * 100% = percent
For example, to convert the decimal 0.75 to a percent, you would multiply 0.75 by 100% to get 75%:
0.75 * 100% = 75%
Alternatively, you can express the decimal as a fraction, convert the fraction to a percent, and then simplify the result if necessary.
For example, to convert the decimal 0.75 to a percent, you can express 0.75 as the fraction 3/4 and then convert the fraction to a percent:
3/4 = 75/100 = 75%
