### 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. 25% (read as 25 percent) can also be expressed as 25/100 or 25:100.Example: If 25% (25 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 25 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 25*100 (i.e. $2500) are invested in stocks.
