The term "percent" is derived from the Latin word "per centum," which means "per hundred. Percentage is a way of expressing a number as a fraction of 100..

A percentage is a ratio that compares a number to 100. For example, if a quantity is expressed as 50%, this means that the quantity is equal to 50 parts out of 100. Another way to understand it is that 50% is equivalent to the fraction 0.5, which is equal to 50/100.

In mathematics, there are several formulas and methods for calculating percentages, such as finding the percentage increase or decrease of a number, converting a fraction or decimal to a percentage, or finding the original number given the percentage.
