<p><span class="sol"><var>SOLN</var></span> %</p>
<div class="hints">
<p>To convert a decimal to a fraction, we need to multiply by 100 and add the <code>\%</code> symbol.</p>
<p>To multiply by 100, we can just move the decimal point two places to the right.</p>
<p><code><var>DECIMAL</var> \rightarrow <var>DECIMAL * 10 </var> \rightarrow <var>SOLN</var></code></p>
<p>So <code><var>DECIMAL</var></code> = <code><var>SOLN</var>\%</code>.</p>
