### Percentage examples

Percentages express a proportionate part of a total. When a total is not given then it is assumed to be 100. E.g. 85% (read as 85 percent) can also be expressed as 85/100 or 85:100.Example: If 85% (85 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 85 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 85*100 (i.e. $8500) are invested in stocks.
