How to Figure Out Percentage
Percentage is a mathematical way of expressing a fraction of a whole as a number out of 100. It is often used to represent parts of a whole, such as the percentage of students who passed a test or the percentage of a population that lives in a particular area.
Steps to Figure Out Percentage

Convert the fraction to a decimal. Multiply the numerator (the top number) by 100 and divide the result by the denominator (the bottom number). For example, to convert the fraction 1/2 to a decimal, you would multiply 1 by 100 and divide the result by 2. This would give you 50.

Add a percent sign. To convert a decimal to a percentage, simply add a percent sign (%) to the end of the number. For example, to convert the decimal 0.50 to a percentage, you would add a percent sign to the end of the number. This would give you 50%.
Here is an example of how to figure out the percentage of students who passed a test:
 Let’s say that there are 100 students in a class and 75 of them passed the test.
 To find the percentage of students who passed the test, we would divide the number of students who passed the test (75) by the total number of students in the class (100) and multiply the result by 100.
 This would give us 75/100 * 100 = 75%.
