# Java program to calculate the percentage

Percent means percent (hundreds), i.e., a ratio of the parts out of 100. The symbol of a percent is %. We generally count the percentage of marks obtained, return on investment etc. The percentage can go beyond 100% also.

For Example, assuming that we have total and a part. So we say what part is what percent of total and should be calculated as −

percentage = ( part / total ) × 100

## Algorithm

1. Collect values for part and total
2. Apply formula { percentage = ( part / total ) × 100 }
3. Display percentage

## Example

import java.util.Scanner;
public class Percentage {
public static void main(String args[]){
float percentage;
float total_marks;
float scored;
Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
scored = sc.nextFloat();

System.out.println("Enter total marks ::");
total_marks = sc.nextFloat();

percentage = (float)((scored / total_marks) * 100);
System.out.println("Percentage ::"+ percentage);
}
}

## Output

Enter your marks ::
500
Enter total marks ::
600
Percentage ::83.33333
