Hello Hello !!
To express a decimal number as a percentage, simply multiply it by 100 and add the% sign afterwards.
Example: express 0.356 as a percentage
0.356 × 100 = 35.6%
Now, for the opposite, turn 35.6% into a decimal.
You should know that the symbol % means ÷ by 100. So, let's replace the symbol of% by ÷ 100:
35.6% = 35.6 ÷ 100 = 0.356
Do not hesitate if you have other questions.
