How do you write .046 as a percent

OpenStudy (shadowfiend):

So a percentage is basically a number over 100. We can turn a decimal into a percentage, therefore, by multiplying it by 100. Is that enough to help?

so is the answer4.6%

OpenStudy (shadowfiend):

Correct!

Another way to think about percents is this: If you had $0.046 dollars how many pennies would that be? Answer: 0.50 dollars --> 50 cents then 0.046 dollars --> 4.6 cents. You simply moving the decimal to the right 2 places. It is allot easier to say the '75% of dentist agree' then to have to say '0.75 dentists in our sample'.
