# Maths KS2: Decimal Dance Off 2

**In this clip we show that percentages are amounts out of 100, which may simplify to an equivalent fraction.**

Division by 100 is used to convert percentages to decimals. Equivalent fractions and place value denominators are used to convert between decimals and fractions.

The concept of a recurring decimal is also introduced.

This clip is from the series Kick Sum Maths.

*Teacher Notes*

*This clip could be used to demonstrate how being able to convert between fractions, decimals and percentages enables us to compare quantities presented in different ways.*

*Simple examples of comparison are questions such as “who's result is better: 12/20 or 55%?”.*

*Curriculum Notes*

*These clips could be used for teaching Maths at KS2 or at a beginner level in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and 1st and 2nd Level in Scotland.*
