Per cent means out of 100, so 10% means "10 out of 100".
To work out the percentage OF something, replace the word OF with multiplication (×).

Percentages are used in everyday life, for example, calculating discounts during sales and interest rates at banks. Knowing how to find and use percentages is an important skill.

A percentage is a proportion that shows a number as parts per hundred. The symbol ‘%’ means ‘per cent’. 9% means 9 out of every 100, or \(\frac{9}{10}\).

Percentages are just one way of expressing numbers that are part of a whole. These numbers can also be written as fractions or decimals. 50% can also be written as a fraction, \(\frac{1}{2}\), or a decimal, 0.5. They are all exactly the same amount.
