    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??

    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??

    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
