Percentages represent ratios as being out of 100. For example, 10 percent represents 10 out of every 100. You can calculate a percentage by dividing the number of desired results out of the number of total results, and multiplying the result by 100. When you have a decimal, you can convert it to a percentage just by multiplying by 100, which results in moving the decimal two places to the right.

    Multiply the decimal 0.06 by 100 to get 6 percent.

    Divide the decimal 0.06 by 0.01 to confirm your answer of 6 percent.

    Check your answer with an online decimal-to-percent calculator. Enter 0.06 and push convert and the converter will display an answer of 6 percent.
