Best Answer

It represents "part of one hundred" The ratio of any two numbers is expressed by expanding (or reducing) the denominator of the fraction to 100. The resulting numerator is the "percent". For example, if on a quiz you got 7 out of 10 answers correct ( 7 of 10 or 7/10) Expand the fraction to make the denominator 100. (multiply the denominator by 10) Then multiply the numerator by 10. The ratio stays the same but is now 70/100. You scored 70%
