### 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. 20% (read as 20 percent) can also be expressed as 20/100 or 20:100.Example: If 20% (20 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 20 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 20*100 (i.e. $2000) are invested in stocks.

Related signs include the permille (per thousand) sign ‰ and the permyriad (per ten thousand) sign ‱ (also known as a basis point), which indicate that a number is divided by one thousand or ten thousand, respectively.### Scholarship programs to learn math
