A percentage is one of the most useful math concepts in real life. Percentage comes from the Latin word ‘Per Centum’ where centum means 100. When a ratio or a number is expressed as a fraction of hundred it is called percentage. It is denoted by using the sign ‘%’, known as percent sign or abbreviations such as “pct” or “pc”.
