Need help calculating unknown percentage

if I execute it in 1.5 days, what percentage have I achieved and how?

the percentage should go higher

e^(i*pi)
If we assume the progression is linear then it's a ratio problem:

$\displaystyle \frac{1.5}{5} = \frac{x}{100}$

and solve for x (which will be a percentage)

If the progression is not linear then I'll need to know the relation between time and percentage

Need Help
scenario is to achieve 100% I have to execute request with in 5 days, if i execute the request in 5 days i achieve 100% but if i execute the request in 2 days i should achieve a higher percentage, is there any formula to find the percentage, i believe if i 5/2 X 100= 250%? is this right
or will it be 5 = 100%
2 = 40%
so if i execute it in 2 days the percentage should be 140%?

What happens if you execute the request in six days?
