Method used:
The word percent means hundredth, that is, divided by 100. The symbol used is %.
Here given 5% means it is equal to \(\displaystyle{\frac{{{5}}}{{{100}}}}\).
That is, we remove the percent sign and divide by 100.
Calculation:
\(\displaystyle{5}\%={\frac{{{5}}}{{{100}}}}={0.5}\)
So, in decimal 5% can be expressed as 0.05.
Conversion of 5% to decimal is 0.05.
