**Nancy**, Wednesday, August 20, 2014 at 8:09pmTo turn a %number into a decimal just move the decimal over two spots from the whole number. So, for example 100% would be 1, or 33 1/3 would be .33333 which is 1/3 of 100%. The 1/3 part turns into .33 because 1/3 of a dollar is 0.33 cents. another example would be 25% is 0.25 because 25% of a dollar is 0.25 or 25 cents. But the easiest way to answer this problem is take 130 and divide it by 33% or by 0.3333
