How do you write 8 percent as a deciamal?
Answer = 0.08
Stuff to know:
8.00 = 800%
0.8 = 80%
0.08 = 8%
100% = 1 because 1 is 100% of what you have.
To write a fraction as a percent, simply divide the numerator by the denominator (in your head, with a computer or calculator, or by hand using long division). Then simply multiply the answer by 100. Example: Write the fraction 3/8 as a percent. Answer: If we divide 3 by 8, we get 0.375. Multiply that by 100 to get 37.5%.
To get from a percent to a decimal, simply move the "decimal point" over two places to the left. There is no defined (drawn) decimal point in the percent, but it is understood that it is after the 8, so it's also 8.0%. As a decimal, 8% is .08, now just write it as a fraction: 8/100, which can be simplified to 2/25
