Answer:
= 0.0325


Solution:
"Percent" means "per 100" or "over 100". To convert 3.25% to a decimal rewrite 3.25 percent in terms of per 100 or over 100.

3.25% = 3.25 over 100 or,
\[ 3.25\% = \frac{3.25}{100} \]3.25 over 100 is the same as 3.25 divided by 100. Completing the division we get:

3.25 ÷ 100 = 0.0325

Therefore, we have shown that

3.25% = 0.0325
