### 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. 1% (read as 1 percent) can also be expressed as 1/100 or 1:100.Example: If 1% (1 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 1 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 1*100 (i.e. $100) are invested in stocks.

### Percentage sign (%)
