    There are three ways to show 1.8:

    1.8

    180/100

    180%

    Percent if french for "per 100".

    To get a percent of a raw number like you have you just multiply it by 100 and put the % sign beside it.

    1.8x100 = 180%

    How i got this:

    Every number is a fraction. If you just have 1.8, it can always be though of as:

    1.8

    ----- = 1.8

    1

    if you multiply your equation by 100 you get 180/100 or 180%.

    You can simplify your fraction and make it 9/5.

    just move the decimal point over 2 spots to the right and add a zero 1.8 then would like 180% works on all decimals to percents and opposit when changing percents to decimals.
