In this section we ** learn how to write any percent as a decimal**. By the end of this section, we'll know how to show that:
\[9\% = 0.09 \quad \text{and} \quad 76\% = 0.76\]
or even:
\[2.5\% = 0.025 \quad \text{and} \quad 317\% = 3.17\]

Knowing *how to write percents as decimals* will be very important when we learn about *percentage increases and decreases* as well as *reverse percentages*, *chain percentages* and even *compound interests*.

In this ** tutorial**, we

Write each of the following *percents* as its *decimal* equivalent:

- \(36\%\)
- \(90\%\)
- \(6\%\)
- \(128\%\)
- \(8 \%\)

- \(29 \%\)
- \(210\%\)
- \(2\%\)
- \(54\%\)
- \(9\%\)

We find the following results:

- \(36\% = 0.36\)
- \(90\% = 0.9\)
- \(6\% = 0.06\)
- \(128\% = 0.128\)
- \(8 \% = 0.08\)
- \(29\% = 0.29\)
- \(210\% = 2.1\)
- \(2\% = 0.02\)
- \(54\% = 0.54\)
- \(9\% = 0.09\)

Write each of the following *percents* as its *decimal* equivalent:

- \(2.3\%\)
- \(10.5 \%\)
- \(1040 \%\)
- \(5025 \%\)
- \(78.2 \%\)

- \(532.6\%\)
- \(0.5\%\)
- \(2003.1\%\)
- \(0.9\%\)
- \(7003.6\%\)

We find the following results:

- \(2.3\% = 0.023\)
- \(10.5 \% = 0.105\)
- \(1040 \% = 10.4 \)
- \(5025 \% = 50.25\)
- \(78.2 \% = 0.782\)
- \(532.6\% = 5.326\)
- \(0.5\% = 0.005\)
- \(2003.1\% = 20.031\)
- \(0.9\% = 0.009 \)
- \(7003.6\% = 70.036\)
