# Program To Calculate Percentage In C

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

Algorithm to find percentage is as follows −

```START
Step 1 → Collect values for part and total
Step 2 → Apply formula { percentage = ( part / total ) × 100 }
Step 3 → Display percentage
STOP
```

## Pseudocode

Pseudocode for the algorithm can be written as −

```procedure percentage()

VAR value, total
percentage = value / total * 100
RETURN percentage

end procedure
```

## Implementation

Implementation of this algorithm is given below −

```#include <stdio.h>

int main() {
float percentage;
int total_marks = 1200;
int scored = 1122;

percentage = (float)scored / total_marks * 100.0;

printf("Percentage = %.2f%%", percentage);

return 0;
}
```

## Output

Output of the program should be −

```Percentage = 93.50%
```
