# Template:Percentage Template documentation[view]  [history] [purge]

{}

## Limitations

Figures smaller than 0.0001% are shown in scientific notation.

## Examples

• {} yields 33%
• {} yields 33.33%

Negative values can be used:

• {} yields -33%

Normal operation is to cut off all decimal zeroes from right in rounding:

• {} yields 20%
• {} yields 11.11%

• {} yields 20.00%
• {} yields 11.1100%

Third parameter can also be given through |pad=N:

• {} is same as {} and yields 11.1000%

Default denominator is 100:

• {} yields 20%

Default precision is zero:

• {} yields 33%

Override the percent symbol

• {} yields 33 percent

Use a prescribed number of significant figures

• {} yields 0.0250%

## Aliases

• `{{Pct}}`
• `{{Percent}}`

Calculates and displays a percentage value.

Template parameters

ParameterDescriptionTypeStatus
Numerator`1`

The Numerator of the calculated value. The percentage will be calculated as Numerator divided by Demoninator.

Numberrequired
Denominator`2`

The Demoninator of the calculated value. The percentage will be calculated as Numerator divided by Demoninator. Can be left out, in which case 100 will be used as the Demoninator, and the Numerator will be the direct percentage used.

Default
100
Numbersuggested
Decimals`3`

Number of decimals to round to (zero or greater); if pad is not Yes, 0-digits will be cropped from the end.

Default
0
Numberoptional
Pad / actual number of digits`pad`

If yes, use all digits given in Decimals. If a number, pad to that number of decimals.

Stringoptional
Significant figures`sigfig`

If set to a positive integer, the precision of the returned number will be adjusted to match the requested number of significant figures.

Numberoptional
% replacement`%`

Replacement for % symbol
