In order to calculate the percentage, you need at least two values. If you calculate the average percentage of a number, then you need to use two or more values to fit in the formula below. Example:
Let’s say you want to calculate the percentage of the marks Rajesh scored in three subjects on the term exam. He scored 55 percent in Maths, 60 percent in Science and 80 percent in English. How would you calculate the average percentage of the marks Rajesh scored?
( Note: The percentage indicated for each subject is written in the percentage of the marks scored and not the marks.)
Sum all the percentages that you need to calculate the average percentage for and divide it by the total number of subjects.
- Maths= 55 %
- Science= 60%
- Calculate Average Percentage=(55+60+80)/3
Hence, the average score Rajesh scored in the three subjects is 65%.
You can use the percentage calculator to check if you have calculated the correct percentage.
