A percent is a ratio, or rate, that compares a number to100

A percent is a number relative to 100. Therefore, we want the number 100 in the ratio. In order to do that, we need to multiply BOTH numbers in the ratio by a number so that the second number of the new ratio is equal to 100. The first number of the new ratio is the percent. For example: 4:5 = [4*20]:[5*20] = 80:100 = 80%

A ratio is a comparison of one number in relation to another number. A percent is a comparison of one number in relation to One Hundred.

No it is not equal to a ratio.

100 in latin is cent - that's why there's 100 in a dollar. A ratio per 100 is per cent - percent =)

A ratio can have any denominator. In a percent the denominator is implicitly 100 and only the numerator is mentioned. So 35 percent is the same as the ratio 35/100 or the ratio 7/20.
