The reason I equated 100% to 1.00 is because that is the decimal equivalent. When converting a decimal to a percentage, you are not multiplying by 100%, but by 100. You are effectively moving the decimal point to the right by two places. That is where the confusion seems to stem from. You were using % to indicate the change to a percentile from a quantitative number, and I was thinking you were trying to multiply the quantitative number by a percentile.
