Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hi crazy_girl, You can take 8.05 and multiply by 100/100 (that's just multiplying by 1, so it doesn't change the number  just the "name" of the number!) Then, 8.05 * 100/100 = 805/100; it can be reduced, if desired. This name makes it easy to go to the percent name, since 1% = 1/100: 805/100 = 805*(1/100) = 805% So  the number 8.05 has *lots* of different names; and different names are good for different things you might want to do with the number!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And... one of my web pages might be helpful for you; it talks about changing decimals to percents: http://www.onemathematicalcat.org/algebra_book/online_problems/dec_to_percent.htm It talks about a *really easy way* to go from a decimal to a percent. There's lot of practice at the bottom, if you want feedback about if you've got the idea down... hope it helps!
