Formula To Calculate Percentage
Let us understand the above formula with some examples.
Example – Calculating Percentage
For example, a test of 5 subjects was taken each having 100 marks. Thus, a total of 500 marks of which a test is taken.
Now the number of marks obtained by any student will be a portion of this number. Let us assume that a student obtained 400 marks.
Thus, applying the above formula, the calculation will be as follows:
400 / 500 X 100 = 80%
Formula to Calculate Percentage Value

Example – Calculating Percentage Value
For example, if there are 200 apples and 20% are rotten. Applying the formula given above, the calculation will be as follows:
200 X 20 / 100 = 40 apples are rotten.
