  • The word comes from the Latin "per Centum", meaning "by the hundred". The latin word "Centum" means "100", for example a century is 100 years. So, "percent" means "per 100".
  • Percent means 1/100, two percent means 2/100, three percent means 3/100, and so on.
  • Although a fraction, the percent occurs in writing without the denominator (100), but only with the numerator, followed by the sign %: 1 percent = 1%, two percent = 2%, three percent = 3%, and so on.
