The words ‘per cent.’ originate from the Latin phrase per centum which means ‘ by the hundred’, that is a certain part of each hundred. Hence, if twenty books in each hundred are non-fiction we say 20 per cent. are non-fiction. The words per cent. are usually denoted by the sign % and thus 20 per cent., or 20 percent., is written 20%.
