Write 75 percent as a decimal.
To answer this question, we first need to remember that “percent” means out of 100. So 75 percent just means 75 out of 100. We can write this as a fraction. It’s equal to 75 over 100.
Now remember, the horizontal line in a fraction means divide. So to convert this fraction to a decimal, we actually need to divide 75 by 100. To divide a number by 100, we can keep the decimal point fixed and move all of the digits two places to the right. This gives 0.75. As a decimal, 75 percent is equal to 0.75.
