# What is half of dfrac 100 100

## Percentages over 100%

Willi compares in his diary how many books he eats every day. And he can do this best with the help of the percentage calculation. Let's repeat the most important terms. The base value is the total number and is synonymous with the whole. The percentage is a certain proportion given as a number. The percentage is the percentage of the base value. We usually specify this as a decimal fraction. You can use this triangle to remember how you calculate the various values. Maybe you already know these terms if the percentage is less than 100%. Now let's look at some examples where the percentage is greater than 100%. On the first day Willi ate 12 books. The day after, 50 percent more. To find out how many books there are, we need to find the percentage. But first we have to find out what we are using as a percentage. The books from day one, i.e. the basic value, correspond to 100%. That's 12 books. Since Willi ate 50% more, this corresponds to 100% plus 50%, i.e. 150% and 1.5 as a decimal fraction. So that's the 12 books and half of those books more. Since we have a percentage greater than 100% here, we know that Willi definitely ate more books than the day before. Let's do the math by calculating G times p%. So Willi ate 18 books today. And it looks like he's still hungry and continues to eat his way through the letters and numbers. The next day he ate 36 books. As a basic value we take the 18 books from before. So this time we want to determine the percentage. The percentage is the relationship between the percentage value and the base value. That is 36 divided by 18, so 2. If we convert that to a percentage, we see that this is 200%. But Willi ate a lot more, 100% more, i.e. twice as much. Apparently Willi still doesn't have enough to eat because he's already eating. One day in the next week he ate 80 books, which is 150% more than the day before. Since it's 150% more, so we use 100% plus 150% = 250% or 2.5 as a percentage. We want to find out the basic value here. We calculate him by dividing W by p% and see that he ate only 32 books the day before. While Willi continues to eat his way through the books, we summarize. In the percentage calculation, the base value is the total number and is equivalent to 100%. The percentage is a certain proportion given as a number. The following applies to the percentage: If it is less than 100%, then the percentage value is less than the basic value. If the percentage is greater than 100%, the percentage value is greater than the basic value. You can use this triangle to remember how you calculate the various values. Is Willi finally fed up? Oh, he couldn't resist his own diary. Well, at least he liked it.
