Description: Percents can be written in decimal form. Per-cent means per-100. So, we divide the percent by 100 to get an equivalent decimal. Then, we remove the percent sign (%). For example, 65% can be converted to decimal form by solving 65÷100. So, 65%=0.65. Another way to think of dividing by 100 is moving the decimal two places to the left.
