## Convert a Fraction to a Decimal

Fractions are numbers which you express as part of a whole. So are percentages – written as a percentage of 100%.

*Decimals* are another way to conceptualize percentages – and in many ways, the canonical way. When you multiply by a percentage, you're actually multiplying as a decimal in relation to 1. That is:

*100% = 1, 99% = .99, etc.*

To convert from a fraction to a decimal, you can avoid the normalizing step of multiplying by 100 to make a percentage. Divide the numerator (top of the fraction) by the denominator (bottom of the fraction) and you're left with the decimal representation.

## Decimals vs. Percentages

To "convert" between percentages and fractions, you only have to divide or multiple by 100. Here's an example of going from percentages to decimals:

Similarly, to move from decimal to percentage, just multiply by 100:

Decimals and percentages are closely related, but to avoid having to do the mental math to convert try our fraction to percent or percent to fraction calculator.
