# Template:Percentage

Template documentation[view]  [history] [purge]

## Usage

{{percentage | numerator | denominator | decimals to round to (zero or greater) }}

## Examples

• {{Percentage | 1 | 3 | 0 }} yields 33%
• {{Percentage | 1 | 3 | 2 }} yields 33.33%

Negative values can be used:

• {{Percentage | -1 | 3 }} yields −33%

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

• {{Percentage | 1 | 5 | 2 }} yields 20%
• {{Percentage | 1111 | 10000 | 4 }} yields 11.11%

• {{Percentage | 1 | 5 | 2 | pad=yes }} yields 20.00%
• {{Percentage | 1111 | 10000 | 4 | pad=yes }} yields 11.1100%

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

• {{Percentage | 111 | 1000 | pad=4 }} is same as {{Percentage | 111 | 1000 | 4 | pad=yes }} and yields 11.1000%

Default denominator is 100:

• {{Percentage | 20 }} yields 20%

Default precision is zero:

• {{Percentage | 1 | 3 }} yields 33%

Override the percent symbol

• {{Percentage | 1 | 3 | % = &nbsp;percent}} yields 33 percent

## Aliases
