What is 7/12 as a percent and decimal?

For Ina  algebra  Reiny, Wednesday, March 24, 2010 at 8:25pm
Area = w(w+3)
= w^2 + 3w

Please do not post a new question as a reply to another student's question.
Tutors will think the question has been answered and it could be overlooked
7 1/2 = 7.5 = 750%

7/12= .58= 58%. It doesn't say 7 1/2.

Jen, you are right, I should really put on my reading glasses when I do these.
