Numbers in the decimal form.

What is Unknown?

Per cent form of the given numbers.

Reasoning:

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

Steps:

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