<p class="question">Express <code><var>PCT</var>\%</code> as a decimal.</p>
<div class="solution" data-type="decimal"><var>SOLN</var></div>
<div class="hints">
<p><code><var>PCT</var>\%</code> literally means <code><var>PCT</var></code> per 100</p>
<p><code><var>PCT</var>\%</code> = <code>\dfrac{<var>PCT</var>}{<var>100</var>}</code></p>
<p>To easily divide by 100, you can just move the decimal point two places to the left.</p>
<p><code><var>PCT</var> \rightarrow <var>roundTo( 5, PCT / 10 )</var> \rightarrow <var>SOLN</var></code></p>
<p>So <code><var>PCT</var>\%</code> = <code><var>SOLN</var></code><p>
