See percent means out of 100 Suppose you score 89 marks out a test of 100 marks, we say you have got 89/100 i.e. 89% Understood??

Yes

So when you have a situation that u hv scored 19 out of a test of 25, you have scored 19/25 BUT for percentage you hv to find how much you have scored out of 100 So, we make the denominator 100 as follows: 19 4 76 -- x --- = ---- 25 4 100 Therefore 19/25 is 76% This also understood??

Oh okay.last question,how did you get the 4,did you multiply?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes, here i multiplied by 4/4 because 25 x 4 gives me a 100 in the denominator If u hv a SKYPE account, we cud talk n I cud explain better Do u hv a SKYPE account??

anonymous
  • anonymous
Yes.i see
anonymous

In case it cannot be made/converted to 100, as say in 22/32, then just multiply the fraction by 100 and put a % sign after the resulting number
