## What is ‘Percentage’?

A percentage (symbol: %) is a number or ratio that represents a fraction of 100. So if we say 27%, we mean 27/100, or 0.27.

## Percentage formula

The percentage formula can be written as below.

`P × V1 = V2`

where P is the percentage in %, V1 is the input value that the percentage will modify, and V2 is the result of the percentage operating on V1. The percentage calculator converts the input percentage into a decimal to compute the solution.

## Examples of percentage calculation

What is 26% of 1068?

• `P × V1 = V2`
• `V2 = 1068 * 26%`
• `V2 = 1068 * 26 / 100`
• `V2 = 277.68`
