## Converting decimals to percents (ex 2)

• 0:01 - 0:06
Let's see if we can write 1.501 as a percentage.
• 0:06 - 0:11
Now, we really just want to write this quantity, as something over 100.
• 0:11 - 0:16
So, what we can do is, we can say that this is the same thing as 1.501 over 1.
• 0:16 - 0:22
We haven't changed it's value, now let's multiply it times 100 over 100.
• 0:22 - 0:25
When we do this product, and I haven't changed the value,
• 0:25 - 0:27
this just multiplying something times one.
• 0:27 - 0:30
But, when we do it we're going to change the way that we're representing it.
• 0:30 - 0:35
The denominator now, is going to be 1 times 100, so that's pretty straightforward.
• 0:35 - 0:37
That's just going to be 100.
• 0:37 - 0:42
And then the numerator, we're going to want to multiply 1.501 times 100.
• 0:42 - 0:44
And so, this is going
• 0:44 - 0:46
If we multiply this times 10,
• 0:46 - 0:47
we would move the decimal one over,
• 0:47 - 0:49
we want to be multiplied by hundreds,
• 0:49 - 0:50
we want to multiply by 10 again.
• 0:50 - 0:53
So we going to more the decimal over to the right twice.
• 0:53 - 0:56
We're multiplying it by 10, twice.
• 0:56 - 0:58
Or you're multiplying it by 100.
• 0:58 - 0:59
This is multiplying by 10,
• 0:59 - 1:00
this is multiplying it by 100.
• 1:00 - 1:02
So this is where the decimals are going to sit now.
• 1:02 - 1:06
So we're going to get 150.1
• 1:06 - 1:12
And so we've rewritten 1.501 as 150.1 over 100,
• 1:12 - 1:15
or 150.1 per 100.
• 1:15 - 1:21
Let me write that, 150.1 per... per 100
• 1:21 - 1:26
Which is the same thing as 150.1 per cent
• 1:26 - 1:33
Which is the same thing as 150.1%
• 1:33 - 1:34
And we're done.
• 1:34 - 1:36
And essentially what we are doing
• 1:36 - 1:37
- if you really want to simplify the process -
• 1:37 - 1:41
we're multiplying this by 100 to get 150.1
• 1:41 - 1:44
and then we're saying that is the percentage.
• 1:44 - 1:47
So you wanna make sure that you write % there or the % symbol.
