    Usually, you want to know the percentage that one part of a whole is compared to the whole.
    \% = \frac{\text{part of a whole}}{\text{whole}} That tells you : If the whole ensemble would be 100 elements then this part would represent x of these.

    Learning a new topic will take a few hours or days, so it will help if you could narrow down your area of difficulty. Are you needing to learn what a "percentage" is? How to convert between decimals, fractions, and percents? How to set up and solve basic "percent of" word problems? Or something else?

    Please be complete. Thank you!
