# How to calculate the percentage of marks?

Percentage of marks can be calculated using the below formula:
Percentage of marks = (Obtained marks/Maximum marks) × 100
Two simple steps can be defined to find the percentage of marks as:
Step 1: Divide the obtained marks by the maxim marks of the test.
Suppose we are given the marks secured in five subjects, then we should divide the total marks secured in five subjects together by the maximum marks of five subjects together.
Step 2: Multiply the result by 100 to get the percentage of marks.
