# Decimals to percentages

1. Change `0.25` to a percentage

Multiply both sides by `x` to get `x` on its own. (What you do to one side do to the other).

`(100timescancelx)/cancelx=(1timesx)/0.25`

`100=x/0.25`

Multiply both sides by `0.25` to get `x` on its own.

`0.25times100=(xtimescancel0.25)/cancel0.25`

`x=100times0.25`

`x=25`

**Answer:** `x=25%`
