72% AS a decimal  

 

The % sign is called percent. 

 

Percent is short for per centum.  

Centum means hundred.  It's Latin. 

 

When they want to say something important,

they say it in Latin.  Lawyers do this a lot. 

Nobody knows why.  

 

And in math, "per" means "divided by".

 

Anyway, 72 percent is 72 per hundred, written as 0.72.
