I have a formula field that returns a number 3.25.  I want it to return .0325 so I can multiple it as a percent.

I'm not sure what you're trying to do.

 If you have a formula that produces a value and you just want to use that value as a % in another formula, then, as mlmcc said, just divide by 100 in the other formula.  If you want to round the result before you use it as a %, you can use Round/Int/Trunc to do that in the other formula too.

 If the first formula is on the report and you want to change how the value is shown, change that formula to divide its result by 100, which will also take care of the second formula.

 If you were thinking of changing the number of decimals shown in the field format as a way of changing the formula result to a %, that won't work.  The field format only affects how the value is displayed.  The value itself is not changed.
