A percentage is the measure of the number of items in a set (or total) expressed as a fraction with a denominator of 100 (one hundred).

A percentage is a ratio per 100 items. By always using 100, the percentages are easily compared for statistics.

A percentage is the numerator of a fraction with the denominator 100 (one hundred). To convert a fraction to a percentage multiply the numerator and the denominator by a factor in order to have the denominator equals to 100.

__Example:__ $ 3/4 = (3*25)/(4*25) = 75/100 = 75\% $

List of common fractions:

1/2 | 50% |
---|---|

1/3 | 33.3% |

2/3 | 66.7% |

1/4 | 25% |

3/4 | 75% |

1/5 | 20% |

2/5 | 40% |

3/5 | 60% |

4/5 | 80% |

Use the form at the top of the page for any other fraction.

A percentage is already a fraction (over 100), write this proportion as a fraction in lowest term.

__Example:__ $ 25\% = 25/100 = 1/4 $

The dCode tools as the equation solver allows to solve equations such as:

__Example:__ If 25% of X = 100, Then X = ? (The corresponding equation is `x*(25/100)=100` and the answer is 400)

Sometimes the letters `pc` are used as an abbreviation of the word `percent`, often when the `%` key is not available (some keyboards or typewriters do not contain this sign)
