What is Unknown?

Per cent form of the given numbers.


First convert the decimal form into fractions and after that multiply the fraction with \(100\) to convert it into percentage.


(a) \[\begin{align}&0.65 = \frac{{65}}{{100}}\\ &\frac{{65}}{{100}} \times 100 = 65\%\end{align}\]

(b) \[\begin{align}&2.1 = \frac{{21}}{{10}}\\ &\frac{{21}}{{10}} \times 100 = 210\%\end{align}\]

(c) \[\begin{align}&0.02 = \frac{2}{{100}}\\ &\frac{2}{{100}} \times 100 = 2\%\end{align}\]

(d) \[\begin{align}&12.35 = \frac{{1235}}{{100}}\\ &\frac{{1235}}{{100}} \times 100 = 1235 \%\end{align}\]
