### 50% of 2 is 1. Explanation: What does 50 percent (or 50%) mean?

Percent (%) is an abbreviation for the Latin “per centum”, which means per hundred or for every hundred. So, 50% means 50 out of every 100.

### Methods to calculate "What percent of 2 is 1" with step by step explanation:

#### Method 1: Diagonal multiplication to calculate "What percent of 2 is 1"

- For 2, our answer will be 1
- For 100, our answer will be x
- 2*x = 100*1 (In Step 1 and 2 see colored text; Diagonal multiplications will always be equal)
- x = 100*1/2 = 100/2 = 50

#### 50% of 2 is 1

#### Method 2: Same side division to calculate "What percent of 2 is 1"

- For 2, our answer will be 1
- For 100, our answer will be x
- 1/x = 2/100 (In Step 1 and 2, see colored text; Same side divisions will always be equal)
- 2/100 = 1/x or x/1 = 100/2
- x = 1*100/2 = 100/2 = 50

#### 50% of 2 is 1

### Percentage examples

Percentages express a proportionate part of a total. When a total is not given then it is assumed to be 100. E.g. 2% (read as 2 percent) can also be expressed as 2/100 or 2:100.Example: If 2% (2 percent) of your savings are invested in stocks, then 2 out of every 100 dollars are invested in stocks. If your savings are $10,000, then a total of 2*100 (i.e. $200) are invested in stocks.

### Percentage sign (%)

The percent (per cent i.e. per hundred) sign % is the standard symbol to indicate a percentage, to signify a number or ratio as a fraction of 100. Related signs include the permille (per thousand) sign ‰ and the permyriad (per ten thousand) sign ‱ (also known as a basis point), which indicate that a number is divided by one thousand or ten thousand, respectively.### Scholarship programs to learn math
