How do you make 12% as a decimal

Report as

Converting percentages to decimals is very easy to do. All you do is move the period two places to the left. In this case, drop the percent and make a period. 12. Move two places to the left, .12. There you go. Same when doing the opposite except you go to the right. .30.. move two to the right, is 30. which is 30%. :)

12 percent can be changed to a decimal:

percent means hundred so 12% is the same as 12/100 or 12 out of 100.

Using your calculator enter 12 and divide by 100 = .12

or move the % sign two places to the left it is still .12

reverse it for changing from decimal to percent.
