## How to Convert a Decimal to a Percent

Percent means “per 100” and can be expressed in percent form which has a **%** symbol after the number, or in decimal form, which does not have the % symbol.

There are a few ways to convert a decimal to a percentage, we’ll cover two of them.

### Method One: Multiply by 100

To convert from a decimal number to percent form, simply multiply the decimal by 100 and add the % symbol to the end. See the following formula for converting a decimal to a percentage.

p = d × 100

Thus, the percentage *p* is equal to the decimal *d* times 100. Using this same method, you can divide the percentage by 100 to convert to a decimal.

**For example:** let’s convert .367 to a percent using the formula.

p = decimal × 100

p = .367 × 100

p = 36.7%

### Method Two: Shift the Decimal Point

An alternative approach is to simply move the decimal point to the right 2 places. You can shift the decimal point two places to the right when multiplying a number by 100.

This is because multiplying by 100 increases the value of the number by two decimal places, which corresponds to a factor of 10² in base 10. Therefore, moving the decimal point two places to the right achieves the same result as multiplying by 100.

**For example:** let’s convert .275 to a percent by shifting the decimal place to the right 2 places.

p = .275

p = 2.75

p = 27.5%
