How can I solve this question,

Write 83.9% as a decimal, and write 0.038 as a percentage.

2. To change a percent to a decimal, divide by 100. Or you can simply move the decimal point two places to the left.

83.9% = 0.839

To change a decimal to a percent, multiply by 100. Or move the decimal point two places to the right.

0.038 = 3.8%
