Percent
A percent can be expressed using the percent symbol %, for example:
10 percent
or 10% are both the same.
A percent is equivalent to a fraction with denominator 100,
for example:
40% of car
sales = of car sales = of car sales
Percent and hundredths are basically equivalent. This makes conversion
between percent and decimals very easy.
To convert from a decimal to a percent, just move the decimal 2 places to the
right, for example:
0.15 = 15 hundredths = = 15%.
Converting from percent to decimal form is similar, only you move the decimal
point 2 places to the left, for example:
5% = = 0.05
