Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you will learn how to write percentages as decimals by dividing the percentage by 100, which is the same as moving the decimal point two places to the left. This is demonstrated through various examples, including more complicated problems with fractions and decimals involved. You will also see a tricky example where a percentage cannot be written solely as a decimal without rounding, and will be introduced to the concept of writing percentages as exact fractions in the next lesson.
