## What is a percentage?

In mathematics, a percentage is a number or ratio that represents a fraction of 100.

- The word per cent means per 100.
- It is represented by the symbol “%”

For example, if you have 45 out of 100 items, you can say you have 45 percent (or 45%) of the items. Percentages are used to compare ratios, proportions, and changes in quantities. They are helpful in various fields such as finance, statistics, and general day-to-day calculations.

#### Input:

**Percentage:**The percentage value you want to calculate (e.g., 20%).**Amount:**The total amount from which you want to find the percentage (e.g.,1200).

**Calculation:** The formula used to calculate the percentage is: **Result=(Percentage/100)×Amount**

**Example:** If you input 20% and 1200, the calculation would be: Result = ( 20/100 ) × 1200= 240

### Calculate What Percentage One Number Is of Another

**Input**

**Amount1:** The first number you want to find the percentage for (e.g., $25).

**Amount2: **The second number, which is the reference value (e.g., $100).

**Calculation: **The formula to calculate what percentage Amount1 is of Amount2 is:

**Percentage=(Amount1/Amount2)×100**

**Example: **If you input $25 as Amount1 and $100 as Amount2, the calculation would be:

**Percentage=(25/100)×100=25**

The output will show 25%, meaning $25 is 25% of $100.
