EXPRESSING PERCENTAGE AS DECIMAL FRACTION -

To express a percentage as a decimal fraction, you can follow these steps:

1. Remove the percentage symbol (%) from the given percentage.
2. Divide the resulting value by 100.

Here's an example.1 :-

Let's say you have a percentage of 85%.

1. Remove the percentage symbol: 85
2. Divide by 100 : 85 / 100 = 0.85

Here's an example.2:-

Let's say you have a percentage of 47%.

So, 75% is equivalent to the decimal fraction 0.47.

To convert the percentage into a decimal fraction, we remove the % symbol and divide it by 100. We know that dividing by 100 means shifting the decimal point by two places to the left.
