Percent - Converting decimals, fractions to percent - Intomath
Percent is a concept that is widely used in everyday life in a variety of situations.
“30% Discount”, “Yes, definitely, 100%” – are just some of the expressions that we encounter frequently.
It is important to understand what the above means and how it can be useful.
A percent is a number out of a 100. The term “percent” is derived from the Latin per centum, meaning “by the hundred”. In Ancient Rome, before the decimal system was invented, computations were often made in fractions which were multiples of 1/100 (or 0.01 if recorded as a decimal). Thus, computation with these fractions was the same as computing percentages.
