<p>Express the percent as a decimal.</p>
<p class="question"><code><var>PERCENT</var>\%</code></p>
<p class="solution" data-forms="integer, decimal"><var>DECIMAL</var></p>
<div class="hints">
<p><code><var>PERCENT</var></code> percent = <code><var>PERCENT</var></code> per cent = <code><var>PERCENT</var></code> per hundred</p>
<p><code><var>PERCENT</var>\% = \dfrac{<var>PERCENT</var>}{100}</code></p>
<p><code>\hphantom{<var>PERCENT</var>\%} = <var>DECIMAL</var></code></p>
<p>Another way to convert a percent to a decimal is to divide by <code>100</code> (or move the decimal two places to the left) and remove the percent sign.</p>
