When we say "Percent" it means we are saying "per 100"
The symbol of percentages is "%" .
Suppose we are saying 50% it means 50 per 100.
Suppose we are saying 25% it means 25 per 100.
A Percent can also be expressed as a Decimal or a Fraction
For example, the fraction 25/100 is written as 25%, and read as "25 percent".
