Percentages express a proportionate part of a total. When a total is not given then it is assumed to be 100. E.g. 87% (read as 87 percent) can also be expressed as 87/100 or 87:100.Example: If 87% (87 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 87 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 87*100 (i.e. $8700) are invested in stocks.
