## How to Convert From Percent to Decimal

Often a percent value needs to be converted to decimal form to allow it to be used in other equations. The decimal form does not have the **%** symbol.

Since percent literally means “per 100,” converting to decimal form is as simple as dividing the percentage by 100 and removing the % symbol.

There are two simple ways to convert a percent to decimal. The first is to use a formula, and the second is to shift the decimal point.

### Method One: Using the Percent to Decimal Formula

To convert from percent to decimal, use the following formula:

decimal = percent / 100

Thus, the decimal value is equal to the percent value divided by 100.

To convert a decimal back to a percent you can multiply the value by 100%.

### Method Two: Shift the Decimal Point

The second method to convert a percent to decimal is simply moving the decimal point to the left two places and removing the percent symbol. For example:

27.5% = 0.275

Notice that in the example above, the decimal point was shifted to the left two places.

**Example:** convert 48.5% to a decimal

decimal = percent / 100

decimal = 48.5 / 100

decimal = .485
