### 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. 59% (read as 59 percent) can also be expressed as 59/100 or 59:100.Example: If 59% (59 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 59 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 59*100 (i.e. $5900) are invested in stocks.
