# Per cent symbol (%)

For example, if someone says "I earned a 70% on my math test," they are saying that they earned 70 out of 100 possible points. How do you write percents per cent? To write percents per cent, use the percent sign twice. For example, "100 percents per cent" would be written as "100%%." Is a percent symbol? A percent symbol is a symbol that represents a fractional value of 100. In the English language, the percent symbol is typically represented by the percent sign "%". Does percent come before or after? The correct answer is "after." Percent comes after the number it modifies. Is it %100 or 100 %? The answer is actually 100%. The reason is that when you divide something into percent (%) it means out of 100. So, if you have 50% of an object, that means 50 out of 100, or half. 100% would mean the entire object, or all of it.

### How is percent written?

The symbol "%" is used to represent percentage. To write a percentage, we often use the symbol "%" followed by the number or percentage. For example, "5%" means five percent.

When we want to express a percentage as a fraction or decimal, we can use the symbol "%" to convert it. For example, "5%" can be expressed as 0.05 (5/100), or as 0.5 (5/10).

To convert a fraction or decimal to a percentage, we can use the symbol "%" to multiply it. For example, 0.05 can be expressed as 5% (0.05 x 100), or 0.5 can be expressed as 50% (0.5 x 100).
