# What is 0.04 as a Percentage?

### Percentage

The percentage can be defined as a fraction of 100, meaning a fraction whose denominator is always 100. In this concept, we divide fragments out of 100 and not any other proportion.

Let us see this with an example shown by a pie chart. A company calculated its overall sales, which comes out to be 100 units. The company wants to see the percentage sales distribution of each product. Given pie chart denotes the percentage sales of the company of four products; product A, product B, product C, and product D.

Sale of product A denoted by Dark Green = 25 %

Sale of product B denoted by Green = 20 %

Sale of product C denoted by Blue = 15 %

Sale of product D denoted by Yellow = 40 %

Total sale = Sale of A + Sale of product B + Sale of product C + Sale of product D

= 25 + 20 + 15 + 40

= 100

### Steps to Convert any Decimal Number into a Percentage

1. Write the given decimal number in the fraction.
2. Now multiply the obtained fraction by 100.
• 0.04 is a decimal number, and we must represent it as a percentage

Converting 0.04 into a fraction

=0.04 = (004 / 100) X 100

= (1 / 25) X 100

= 4 %

Easy tip: once you get the x / 100 form, you need not solve the fraction further.

Where x can be any number, like in the above example, we got 4 / 100, and 4 is our answer.

### Let us Understand the Topic with Some Examples

Question1. Convert the following decimal values into a percentage

0.01 = (001 / 100) X 100 = 1 %

0.02 = (002 / 100) X 100 = 2 %

0.03 = (003 / 100) X 100 = 3 %

0.04 = (004 / 100) X 100 = 4 %

0.05 = (005 / 100) X 100 = 5 %

0.1 = (01 / 10) X 100 = 10 %

0.2 = (02 / 10) X 100 = 20 %

0.3 = (03 / 10) X 100 = 30 %

0.4 = (04 / 10) X 100 = 40 %

0.5 = (05 / 10) X 100 = 50 %

0.25 = (025 / 100) X 100 = 25 %

0.35 = (035 / 100) X 100 = 35 %

0.75 = (075 / 100) X 100 = 75 %

0.60 = (060 / 100) X 100 = 60 %

1.02 = (102 / 100) X 100 = 102 %

1.05 = (105 / 100) X 100 = 105 %

1.1 = (11 / 10) X 100 = 110 %

1.25 = (125 / 100) X 100 = 125 %

1.75 = (175 / 100) X 100 = 175 %

2.0 = (2) X 100 = 200 %

1.45 = (145 / 100) X 100 = 145 %

2.12 = (212 / 100) X 100 = 212 %

0.87 = (87 / 100) X 100 = 87 %

0.09 = (9 / 100) X 100 = 9 %

1.12= (112 / 100) X 100 = 112 %

0.90 = (90 / 100) X 100 = 90 %

3.65 = (365 / 100) X 100 = 365 %

1.47 = (147 / 100) X 100 = 147 %

Question 2. Mayank and Harry bought a cake and shared it amongst themselves. Harry ate 0.3 part of it, and Mayank ate the rest. Calculate what percentage of cake is eaten by Mayank.

Let the whole cake is denoted by 1.0

Total Percentage = 100 %

Percentage of cake eaten by harry = (03 / 10) X 100

= 30 %

The percentage of cake eaten by Mayank can be calculated as the difference between the total percentage and the percentage of cake eaten by harry.

Hence, the percentage of cake eaten by Mayank = 100 - 30

70 %

Question3. In a competitive examination, Rohan scored 400 marks. Suppose he scored 80 % on the exam. Find the maximum marks in the examination.

Given that,

Total marks scored by Rohan = 400.

Percentage scored by Rohan = 80 %

Therefore, the maximum marks of the examination are calculated as

80 % of M = 400

(80 / 100) X M = 400

(4 / 5) X M = 400

M = (400 X 5) / 4

M = 500

Hence, the maximum marks in the examination are 500.

Question 4. In a cricket match, two batsmen, A and B, scored a decent 60 and 80, respectively. The total run score of the team is 200. Find the percentage contribution of each player towards the final score.

Run scored by player A = 60

Run scored by player B = 80

The final score of the team = 200

Percentage of run scored by player A = (60 / 200) X 100

= 30 %

Percentage of run scored by player B = (80 / 200) X 100

= 40 %
