Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you'll learn how to write any number as a percent by simply multiplying it by 100%. The key idea is that the number 1 and the number 100% are equivalent, so when you write a number as a percent, you're essentially writing it as a fraction out of 100. This process works for whole numbers, decimals, and fractions, and you can use different methods to get the same answer. By the end of the lesson, you'll be able to convert numbers to percents with ease.
