We can just do it in one row:

Convert 90% to a decimal:

90% = 90 / 100 = .90
         We don't need this end zero.

So, 90% = .9


TRY IT:

Convert 65% to a decimal.


When you get used to this, you can skip that middle part!

Convert 32% to a decimal:

32% = .32

Here's a trick to remember this:

There are two little circles on the percent symbol...  So, move the decimal point two places to the left!


YOUR TURN:

Convert 56% to a decimal.

Convert 70% to a decimal.
