# How to Calculate Percentage of Marks

Before telling you about the formulas and how to calculate the percentage firstly I tell you about the definition how what is the percentage. It is denoted by its sign (%). for example 25% (“read as twenty-five percent”) is equal to the fraction of 25/100 or the ratio is 25:75. percentages are often used to express a proportionate part of the total. The percentage can also be written in the form of decimals such as 0.8%, 0.5%.etc.

### What is the Percentage?

The percentage is the number, rate, and amount, of something which is expressed as a part of a total hundred: a part or a share of the whole. In mathematics, a percentage is a number or ratio which is expressed as a fraction of 100. It is often denoted by its sign (%). A percentage is always a pure or final number that does not have any other measurement.

## Some examples of percentages are :

• 10% is equal to the 1/10 fraction
• 20% is equal to the 2/5 fraction
• 25% is equal to the 1/4 fraction
• 50% is equal to the 12 fraction
• 75% is equal to the 3/4 fraction
• 90% is equal to the 9/10 Fraction

The percentage has no dimension. it is called a dimensionless number, if we say 50% of a number then it means that 50 % of the total number and percentage has no measurement. The percentage can also be written in the form of decimals such as 0.8%, 0.5%, 20%, etc. For example, Shyam got 60% marks in the pre-board exams, so this percentage is calculated on the account of the total marks obtained by Shyam in pre-board exams in all subjects to the total marks.

### Percentage formula for How to Calculate Percentage of Marks

% formula = ( value/total value ) X 100

### What are the steps for How to Calculate the Percentage of Marks?

Many of the students have the fear of maths or numerals but it’s not hard to calculate the percentage you have to just read it with full concentration and focus. In the above paragraph, I have cleared your all doubts about the definition. Now here we have applied the application for formula here it is highly important to learn how to calculate the percentage of marks. This formula does not need a pen or paper you can simply do it at your fingertips.

Let us discuss how to compute a percentage of students’ marks. The total marks obtained by the students are divided by the maximum marks and then multiply by 100.

#### Step 1

for example, let’s take a student who obtained different marks in 4 different subjects 90 out of 100 in Hindi, 80 out of 100 in Economics, 60 out of 100 in Accountancy, and 70 out of 100 in English.

#### Step 2

Now firstly you have to add the total marks obtained like this ( 90+80+60+70) which is equal to 300. And total marks for the exam (100+100+100+100) are equal to 400.

#### Step 3

Now you have to divide 300 by 400, and then multiply the result by 100.

#### Solution

Percentage of marks = (300/400) X 100

percentage = 0.75 X 100

Therefore the percentage of marks obtained is 75%.

This formula is easy to understand and it helps you to calculate the percentage of scored marks.

The sum of marks of all subjects = 450

The sum of maximum marks of all subjects = 500

Therefore, your 10th or 12th percentage will be = ( 450 / 100 ) X 100 = 90%

The percentage determines the total number that you actually want to find out the percentage, Divide the number to determine the percentage, and Multiply the value by 100 and you get the percentage. The percentage has no dimension. it is called a dimensionless number,  if we say 50% of a number then it means that 50 % of the total number and percentage has no measurement. The percentage can also be written in the form of decimals such as 0.8%, 0.5%, 20%, etc. For example, Shyam got 60% marks in the pre-board exams, so this percentage is calculated on the account of the total marks obtained by Shyam in pre-board exams in all subjects to the total marks.
