Help your students prepare for their Maths GCSE with this free percent to decimal worksheet of 44 questions and answers
Percentages and decimals are different formats for representing a part of a whole.
To convert from decimals to percentages we need to multiply the decimal by 100. Remember in order to multiply by 100 each number moves two place values to the left whilst the decimal point remains in the same place. An alternative way to think of this is that the percentage is the number of hundredths. Conversely, to convert from percentages to decimals we do the opposite and divide by 100.
To convert fractions to a decimal number, we could first convert them to a percentage by finding an equivalent fraction with a denominator of 100; the numerator would then be the percentage. Once we have the percentage, we can easily convert to a decimal by dividing by 100. We could alternatively find the decimal by dividing the numerator by the denominator and then multiply by 100 to find the percentage.
Looking forward, students can then progress to additional number worksheets, for example a fractions worksheet or a rounding worksheet.
