Is calculating the percent yield in moles different than calculating the percent yield in mass?

I know that to calculate the percent yield in mass, you divide the actual over the theoretical and multiply by 100.

There happens to be a side note in my homework saying that percent yiled can also be calculated by dividing the actual yield in moles by the theoretical yield in moles. Does that mean *without* multiplying it by 100?

You can determine the amount of yield in any sensible way that you need. You can choose mole fraction, mole percent, mass fraction, or mass percent. Manage the units and arithmetic fittingly.
