### Pre-Algebra: Writing a Decimal as a Percent

http://www.mindbites.com/lesson/1257-pre-algebra-writing-a-decimal-as-a-percent A percent gives us a sense of how much of something a number is. Professor Burger shows us that converting a decimal to a percentage is pretty simple. In prior lessons, we've learned how to convert a percentage to a decimal (by dividing by one hundred). In this lesson, we will learn how to convert a decimal to a percentage. To do so, you will multiply the decimal by 100. This is the same as moving the decimal point over two places to the right. Taught by Professor Edward Burger, this lesson was selected from a broader, comprehensive course, Pre Algebra. This course and others are available from Thinkwell, Inc.
