To compare two quantities, their units must be the same. One of the ways of comparing quantities is the percentage. Per cent is derived from the Latin word ‘per centum’ meaning ‘per hundred’. The percent is represented by the symbol % and means a hundredth too. Fractions can be converted into percentages and viceversa. Decimals can also be converted into percentages and vice versa.
