To learn how to convert between decimals, fractions, and percents, try this online lesson.

Short version: Move the decimal point two places to the right. For instance, one-half is "0.50" (like "fifty cents" is half of a dollar), and one-half is also "50%". One-fourth is 0.25, and 25%. One-eighth is 0.125, and 12.5%.

Have fun! :D
