percentage is a normalized ratio, a fraction whose denominator is 100.
 
  Evaluation of percentage value of a quantity is same as conversion of cents to dollar.
 
  Cent is really , Centi dollar , one hundredth of a dollar , Centi meter is one hundredth of a meter.
 
⊄ =0.01 = 1/100 = 0.01
 
    The percent is really a simple definition, but students have a lot of episode with it, because the education does not place any emphasize on improving their thinking ability, blindfolded memorization causes entanglement in procedure and confusion.
