Help students achieve their goals by realising their potential.

Multiply the decimal by 100.


Q1: Write 0.50 as a percentage.

A1: 0.50 x 100 = 50 - therefore 0.50 is 50%


Q2: Write 0.71 as a percentage.

A2: 0.71 x 100 = 71 - therefore 0.71 is 71%


Q3: Write 0.239 as a percentage.

A3: 0.239 x 100 = 23.9 - therefore 0.239 is 23.9%
