To convert any percentage into a decimal divide by 100 (move the decimal two places to the left) 0.5% ÷ 100 = 0.005% Finally remove "%" sign next to the 0.005% → 0.005 To convert any percentage into a fraction divide by 100, and remove "%" sign. (Write a fraction where the numerator is what the percentage was, and the denominator is 100) $0.5$% $=\frac{0.5}{100}=\frac{1}{200}$
