A percentage is a way of expressing a proportion , a ratio or a fraction as a whole number , by using 100 as the denominator . A number such as "45%" ("45 percent" or "45 per cent") is shorthand for the fraction 45/100 or 0.45.

As an illustration,

45 percent of human beings...

is equivalent to both of the following:

45 out of every 100 people... 0.45 of the human population...

One way to think about percentages is to realize that "one percent" , represented by the symbol % , is simply the number 1/100, or 0.01.

A percentage may be a number larger than 100; for example, 200% of a number refers to twice the number . In fact, this would be a 100% increase, while a 200% increase would give a number three times the original value. Thus one can see the relationship between percent increase and times increase .
