Flashcard 4 - Mathematics Flashcard Set for the PRAXIS Test


The correct answer is:

Move the decimal 2 places to the right.


A percent expresses a quantity based on a whole amount of 100; the word percent can be thought of as per one hundred. For example, 35% means 35 out of 100, or \(\frac{35}{100}\), which is 0.35. The decimal number is the percentage divided by 100. To divide by 100, move the decimal 2 places to the left. For example, to convert 62% to a decimal, drop the percent sign to give 62.0, then move the decimal place two places to the left to give 0.62.
