Percentages express a proportionate part of a total. When a total is not given then it is assumed to be 100. E.g. 99% (read as 99 percent) can also be expressed as 99/100 or 99:100.Example: If 99% (99 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 99 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 99*100 (i.e. $9900) are invested in stocks.

By the 16th century, as decimal system became more common, use of percentage became a standard. It was used to compute profit and loss, interest rates etc.
