Chapter 7—Percents 72 Expanding the Scope of Percent Notation The previous lesson introduced you you percent notation and their equivalent fraction and decimal forms. There is more to the percent number line that integers between 0 and 100. Here is what you will be studying in this section:
Percents with Fraction or Decimal Parts Sometimes you will find percents that include fractions and decimal values. Financial reports and mortgage rates, for instance, sometimes include percentages written as 6½ % or 12.3 %. There is nothing tricky about these fractional parts of a percent. They are simply parts of onehundred percent. You will also find percentages that are less than 1. Examples are 0.1%, 0.125%, and so on. These are nothing more than expressions of small percentages—amounts that are less than 1 out of 100.
