### 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. 68% (read as 68 percent) can also be expressed as 68/100 or 68:100.Example: If 68% (68 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 68 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 68*100 (i.e. $6800) are invested in stocks.

By the 16th century, as decimal system became more common, use of percentage became a standard. It was used to compute profit and loss, interest rates etc.
