It"s even easier to compose a decimal number as a percent. Simply multiply the number by 100%.

Examples 1/4 = 0.25 = 0.25 × 100% = (0.25 × 100)% = 25%; 7/8 = 0.875 = 0.875 × 100% = (0.875 × 100)% = 87.5% 1.3/9.4 ≈ 0.138297 = 0.138297 × 100% = (0.138297 × 100)% = 13.8297% 4.3 = 4.3 × 100% = (4.3 × 100)% = 430%;
