*you move the decimal two places.*

**why**Remember: converting a decimal to a percent requires you to multiply by 100 (percent means for every hundred). You are moving the decimal to the right because you are multiplying by a number greater than one. You are moving it twice because 100 is equivalent to 10 to the 2nd power which is equivalent to two place values. Moving from a percent to a decimal requires you to

**by 100. It should make sense that you would move the decimal to the left now because you number should get smaller.**

*divide*
thanks for putting up about conversions. This will help me on the test
