These symbols are sometimes hard to find or not available on your keyboard.

So, in this small article, we’d solve this problem in different ways and learn the use of the PERCENT which is commonly known as the PERCENT symbol in Android phones.



WHAT IS PERCENT SYMBOL ?

Literally, PERCENT means PER CENT i.e. per 100.

PERCENTAGE finding is the process of translating something on a scale of 100.

We quantify anything on a scale of 100.

For example, if 25 students are present out of the total 100 students, we ‘ll say that 50 percent students are present.

because when we translate the 50 students to 100 [ to find out the percentage ], the present students will also be multiplied by 2, the percentage become 50.

Similarly we can find out the percentage in many circumstances.

Percentage is the best way to find out the portions because it ‘ll give us a better picture about the different participants.

e.g. If 5 balls are red, 4 balls are green and one ball is black.

we can say that 50% balls are red, 40% balls are green and 10 Percent balls are black.

It is clear that the percentage shows a better contribution by different constituents in the total population.



WHY DO WE NEED PERCENT SYMBOL?

As most of us know, PERCENT is frequently used in our reports.

PERCENTAGE SIMPLY TRANSLATES THE DATA TO THE SCALE OF 100 I.E. ANY VALUE WILL BE PRESENTED AS A PART OF VALUE 100.



The percentage is so frequently used in our reports that we need a symbol to represent it.

A symbol makes it easy to classify any other value or percentage.
