This category contains results about Percentages.

A **percentage** is a convenient way of expressing (usually) a fraction as an easily-grasped number, by multiplying it by $100$ and appending the symbol $\%$ which means **per cent**.

As conventionally understood, the number being rendered as a **percentage** is between $0$ and $1$, thus determining the range of a **percentage** to be $0 \%$ to $100 \%$.

However in many contexts that range is frequently extended (in particular, in the field of rhetoric):

*I want every member of this team to give one hundred and ten percent.*
