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

A percent is a ratio of a number to 100.

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%

Because it can be expressed as the ratio 85/100.
