Percentages express a proportionate part of a total. When a total is not given then it is assumed to be 100. E.g. 92% (read as 92 percent) can also be expressed as 92/100 or 92:100.Example: If 92% (92 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 92 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 92*100 (i.e. $9200) 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.
