### Percentage examples

Percentages express a proportionate part of a total. When a total is not given then it is assumed to be 100. E.g. 75% (read as 75 percent) can also be expressed as 75/100 or 75:100.Example: If 75% (75 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 75 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 75*100 (i.e. $7500) are invested in stocks.
