In mathematics, a percentage (from Latin per centum "by a hundred") is a number or ratio expressed as a fraction of 100. It is often denoted using the percent sign, "%", although the abbreviations "pct.", "pct" and sometimes "pc" are also used. A percentage is a dimensionless number (pure number); it has no unit of measurement.
Hi!
I was wondering if there was an equation to plug in a standard deviation value and get back approximately the percent likely hood of getting that sigma (for example 1 sigma would be 33%, 3 sigma 0.27%, etc).
Just something that approximates it with algebra, no calculus
Thanks!
The solution in my book:
5/4 = 1.25. That is 25 % more.
What I came up with:
I thought that now we have totally 9 players. So A: 4/9 and B: 5/9. The difference is 1/9 which is about 11%!
A friend told me :
The difference between B & A is 5-4=1
The changing rate is (5-4)/5 = 0.2 !
So B has 20...
I found the density of carbon and iron:

Hello, all. Quick question about how to apply sig figs in percent error problems. Eg. If the actual/target value is 1.95 g and we measure 1.87 g, then should the percent error of our measurement be reported as 4.10% or 4%? Normally, at least abstracting from the problem, after subtracting...
The price in the shop is $ 20 by how much % you how to reduce the price to get 15
So 20= to 100%. if you take away 20 from 15 you get 5

So is it 95%
if it is wrong explain please
