Percentages - from decimals

If we remember that 0.1 is 10% then any single figure decimal is easy:

0.6 = 60%

For two figure values we can change them immediately into percentages:

0.63 = 63%

Three or more figure decimals need two digits and the rest after a decimal point:

0.375 = 37.5%

0.12345 = 12.345%

Values larger than one just need the necessary number of hundreds:

1.35 = 135%
