## 5 Out of 11 Percentage

The number of Americans who are obese in the United States has risen to 5% over the last 10 years, according to an analysis by Princeton University and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Despite this finding, there is still a small but significant group of Americans who have not yet become obese. And these Americans possess the tools necessary to reverse the trend.

### Use

≡ ¾ fraction numbers exactly. Such simple but very accurate tool can be truly handy e.g. when developing or decrypting (an advanced) baking formula, where it is common actually. In mathematics we use percentage numbers x% plus fractions and decimals. With them, the equally same or different mathematical values may be shown and, various pct calculations can be made. Sign percent % can be abbreviated with three letters pct. Use the table further below for the math conversion results.

The symbol for percent (%) evolved from a symbol abbreviating the Italian per cento. In some other languages, the form procent or prosent is used instead. Some languages use both a word derived from percent and an expression in that language meaning the same thing, e.g. Romanian procent and la sutÄƒ (thus, 10% can be read or sometimes written ten for [each] hundred, similarly with the English one out of ten). Other abbreviations are rarer, but sometimes seen. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

### Example

The percentage increase calculator above computes an increase or decrease of a specific percentage of the input number. It basically involves converting a percent into its decimal equivalent, and either subtracting (decrease) or adding (increase) the decimal equivalent from and to 1, respectively. Multiplying the original number by this value will result in either an increase or decrease of the number by the given percent. Refer to the example below for clarification.

In the case of interest rates, a very common but ambiguous way to say that an interest rate rose from 10% per annum to 15% per annum, for example, is to say that the interest rate increased by 5%, which could theoretically mean that it increased from 10% per annum to 10.05% per annum. It is clearer to say that the interest rate increased by 5 percentage points (pp). The same confusion between the different concepts of percent(age) and percentage points can potentially cause a major misunderstanding when journalists report about election results, for example, expressing both new results and differences with earlier results as percentages. For example, if a party obtains 41% of the vote and this is said to be a 2.5% increase, does that mean the earlier result was 40% (since 41 = 40 × (1 + (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
