This is an online marks percentage calculator, which can be used to measure the percentage of marks obtained in an examination. One is to enter the marks that they have scored along with the total marks to find their percentage in the examination.
This Exam Marks Percentage Calculator is useful for school students and college students so that they may keep track of the overall percentage scores. Percentage is the number expressed as a fraction of 100. So let's start, How to find the percentage of marks? With example:
A percentage is a number that is expressed as a fraction of 100. Here the calculation percentage is explained. In order to find the percentage of the marks, we divide the total scores with marks obtained in the examination and then multiply the result with 100.
Example: Suppose if 1156 is the total score obtained by you in the examination out of 1200 marks, then you
divide 1156 by 1200, and then multiply it by 100.
Percentage of marks =(1156/1220) x 100
Percentage= 0.9633 x 100
Therefore, the percentage of marks obtained is 96.3%

The Percentage formula is used to find the amount or share of something in terms of 100. In the simplest form, percent means per hundred.
Percentage formula is used, to express a number between zero and one. It is a number represented as a fraction of 100.
Denoted by the symbol = %, the percentage is usually used to compare and find the ratios.
The Percentage Formula is given as,
The notion of percentage is used so that one can measure the tendency of value with respect to the original value. This has a huge application in businesses while they compute their profit and loss percentage. Percentage defines the ratio of any value to a whole value multiplied by 100. Percentage is denoted by “%”
Generally, the numbers that are to be converted into percentage are given in two formats.
By using this percentage formula, it becomes easy to know how to calculate the percentage of marks, discount etc.
Suppose there are 150 students in class 10^{th}. 75 of them are boys. Find the percentage of boys in the class 10^{th}?
Total students in the class=150
Boys in the class = 75
Percentage of the boys in the class = (75 ⁄ 150) × 100 = (7500 ⁄ 150) = 50%
A percentage is a number that is shown in terms of 100.To find the percentage of the marks obtained, one shall divide the total scores by marks obtained and then multiply the result with 100.
Example: If 79 is the score obtained in the examination out of 100 marks, then divide 79 by 100, and then multiply it by 100.
Solution:
It means that,
Percentage of marks = (79/100) x 100
Percentage= 0.79 x 100
Therefore, the percentage of marks obtained is 79%
The following formula will help you to calculate your marks obtained in class 10th or 12th.
Percentage = (Sum of the marks scored in all the Subjects(out of 100)/Sum of the Maximum Marks of all subjects) x 100
You scored 487/500 Marks
Solution:
The sum of Marks scored in all the Subjects =487
The sum of Maximum Marks of all subjects =500
Therefore, your 10th or 12th Percentage=(487/500)x100
=97.4%
If you happen to have an additional subject then you must add that subject also as the 6th subject and then calculate the percentage for 6 subjects.
In order to calculate the percentage for any marks you need to know the total marks. Therefore, if the paper we are speaking
is equivalent to 100 marks overall then your 1% of the total marks will be
= 1 % of 100 marks
=1 / 100 X 100 = 1 mark
Note that if the value of total marks changes then the value of its 1 % will also change accordingly.
Example: total number of marks = 500
1% of 500 marks
=1/ 100 X 500
= 5 marks
The average test score obtained is the sum of all the scores divided by the number of test-takers.
For example: suppose 3 students took a test and received scores of 69, 87, and 92,
Solution:
Average marks= (69+87+92 ) / 3
=248/ 3
=82.66
Teachers and many specialists may use this average method to monitor the rate at which the class is learning the material. Teachers also use this method to estimate how a student's scores, and then place them in accordingly to the rest of the class. This plays an important role especially for students with learning disabilities.
Just like how we calculated the marks percentage above, the similar method has to be used here. To find the percentage,
we shall divide the total scores with the marks obtained and then multiply the result with 100.
Percentage of Overall Scored Marks = (Scored marks /Out of marks)×100
Example:
A student scored 175 out of 200. Find his Exam Marks Percentage
Solution:
= 175 / 200×100
= 87.5 %
While comparing quantities and marks , the easiest way to do so is to convert all the figures into one common unit. Percentage happens to be the perfect fit here because all quantities can be converted into percentage and comparing becomes much easy and practical. Let’s take an example to understand this topic better.
Example: let store A sell 200 t shirts out of 400 and store B sell 30 pairs of shoes out of 50. Who had more sales?
Solution: as we can see here, the quantities are different and there is no other way to compare them other than converting them into percentage.
Percentage of A = 200/ 400 * 100
= 0.5*100
= 50%
Percentage of B= 30/50 *100
= 0.6* 100
= 60%
We can easily see that the store B had more sales than store A.
Example: suppose Ria scored 39 out of 50 in maths and 58 out of 70 in physics. Where did she score better?
Solution: percentage of marks scored in maths= 39/ 50*100
= 0.78*100
= 78%
Percentage of marks scored in physics = 58/70*100
=0.82*100
=82%
Percentage and fractions are very closely related but have a major difference. A fraction is when a 2 units are divided and a resultant represents a part of the whole. Meanwhile, percentage is when the fraction is multiplied by 100.
Example: percentage of marks scored in maths= 39/ 50*100
= 0.78
39/50 is a fraction whose resultant is 0.78 which is a part of the whole.
When we multiply this 0.78 by 100 we get 78% .
