# What is 9/20 as a percent

The decimals and fractions are just two ways to represent the same numbers.

## Answer: 9/20 as a decimal is equal to 0.45.

Let's convert the given fraction to a decimal.

**Explanation:**

To convert any fraction to decimal form, we just need to divide its numerator by denominator.

Here the fraction is 9/20 which means we need to perform 9 ÷ 20.

### Alternate Method:

It is difficult to perform a division when a dividend is less than the divisor.

So, 9/20 can be expressed as (9/20) × 100/100.

(9/20) × 100 = 9 × 5 = 45

Now, 45 ÷ 100 = 0.45

Therefore, 9/20 = (9/20) × 100/100 = 45/100 = 0.45
