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.
