### What is Percentage?

The word "Percentage" has been derived from the Latin word "Per Centum" which means "By a Hundred". When we say percent, we actually say "Per Hundred".

Defination: It is a number or ratio that defines a fraction of 100. Its symbol is "%" or "Percent".

Generally, we use these following terms so many times in our routine life.

• My water bottle is 60% empty and 40% filled.
• Next month, my salary will be increased by 25%.
• I got 89% in mathematics.

In other words, it is the best way to represent "How much" or "How many". Even more, you can use it to show change, increase/decrease ratio, difference, and a portion of any physical thing.

Also, in statistics, the percentage is very important. Because it sounds more technical to say 50% rather than saying 0.5. Therefore, it is a more convenient way to represent fractions.

## How to Calculate Percentage?

There are many formulas and solutions to find the percentage manually. But the most common formula is as below.

 A B
=   P × 100

Where,

• P = Percentage
• A = First value
• B = Second Value

From this formula, we can make many variations. But we have only used four most common variations in our percentage calculator. Because they are using in the majority of the percentage issues.

The variations are:

Now, let's discuss its formula with some examples one by one.

Also, don't worry about remembering the formulas and calculations. Because it is for learning and knowledge purpose. In regular usage, you can use our percentage calculator and get rid of these manual calculations.

#### 1. What is Percent(%) of A?

Formula: P% × A = B

Let's take an example for more clarification.

##### Example: What is 18% of 120?

First of all, let's differentiate the values from question.

In our case,

• P = 18%
• A = 120
• B = ? (Find Out)

So, place all the values in formula:

18% × 120 = B

Now firstly, we have to convert percentage value into decimal. For that, we can remove the % sign and divide the percentage value with 100.

 18 100
=   0.18

Place the decimal value in the equation and multiply with A value.

0.18 × 120 = 21.6

Finally we get, B = 21.6

#### 2. B is what percent(%) of A?

Formula:
 B A
=   P%
##### Example: 25 is what percent of 150?

Here,

• A = 150
• B = 25
• P(%) = ?

So, the equation will be:

 25 150
=   0.167

Note: The above result is in decimal form. So, you need to multiply the result by 100 to convert it into a percentage.

0.167 × 100 = 16.7%

So, P = 16.7%

#### 3. B is percent(%) of what?

Formula:
 B P%
=   A
##### Example: 30 is 15% of what?

In this case,

• B = 30
• P = 15%
• A = ?

Place above values in formula:

 30 15%
=   A

Firstly, convert the percent into decimal. So, we will divide the 15 by 100.

 15 100
=   0.15

Now get back to the formula and place the decimal value.

 30 0.15
=   200

Therefore, A = 200.

#### 4. Percentage Change

Using this, we can find the % change between two values.

Formula:
 B - A A
=   P%
##### Example: What is percentage change from 35 to 55?

Here,

• A = 35
• B = 55
• P = ?
 55 - 35 35
=
 20 35
=   0.571

Now convert the 0.571 into percent.

0.571 × 100 = 57.1%

So, P = 57.1%

#### 5. Percent, Decimal, and Fraction Conversion

You can convert any percentage values into fractions or decimals using our tool. This feature is at the bottom of the calculator. Even more, it allows you to do the reverse conversion too. For example, fraction to decimal to percent or decimal to fraction to percent. So, we can find any values in between these three.

50%   =
 1 2
=   0.5
