#### Answer

As a decimal: $0.606$ As a fraction: $\frac{60.6}{100}$

#### Work Step by Step

To convert any percentage into a decimal divide by 100 (move the decimal two places to the left). 60.6% ÷ 100 = 0.606% Finally remove "%" sign next to the 0.606% → 0.606 To get the fraction write a fraction where the numerator is what the percentage was (remove the "%" sign), and the denominator is 100. $60.6%$=$\frac{60.6}{100}(=\frac{303}{500})$
