Definition of Percentage

A Percentage is a number that gives you a fraction of $100$.

We use the symbol $\%$ for percentages.

A percentage gives you the numerator of a fraction with a denominator of $100$.

For example,

• $10\% = \dfrac{10}{100}$
• $25\% = \dfrac{25}{100}= \dfrac{1}{4}$
• $50\% = \dfrac{50}{100} = \dfrac{1}{2}$
• $75 \% = \dfrac{75}{100} = \dfrac{3}{4}$
• $100 \% = \dfrac{100}{100} = 1$
