### 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. 95% (read as 95 percent) can also be expressed as 95/100 or 95:100.Example: If 95% (95 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 95 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 95*100 (i.e. $9500) are invested in stocks.

- To find 5%, find 10% and divide it by two
- To find 11%, find 10%, then find 1%, then add both values
- To find 15%, find 10%, then add 5%
- To find 20%, find 10% and double it
- To find 25%, find 50% and then halve it
- To find 26%, find 25% as above, then find 1%, and then add these two values
- To find 60%, find 50% and add 10%
- To find 75%, find 50% and add 25%
- To find 95%, find 5% and then deduct it from the number
