### How to Calculate Your Marks Percentage

The **Marks Percentage Calculator** is a tool designed to help you quickly and easily determine the percentage of marks you’ve achieved out of a total possible score. Understanding how to calculate your percentage manually can be helpful, so here’s the formula and an example.

#### Formula for Percentage Calculation:

The percentage is calculated using the following formula:

Percentage= (Obtained Marks ÷ Total Marks)×100

This formula helps you figure out what portion of the total marks you have achieved, expressed as a percentage.

#### Example:

Let’s say you scored **75 marks** out of a total of **100 marks** in an exam. To calculate your percentage: Percentage= (75 ÷ 100)×100= 75%

So, your score is **75%**.

#### What Is a Good Percentage?

A “good” percentage can vary based on the grading standards of your school, university, or institution. Generally, **60% and above** is considered good, while anything above **85%** is excellent in most academic settings.

#### Use Cases of Percentage Calculations:

**Academic Performance**: Students use percentage scores to determine their grades or assess their academic performance.**Business Reports**: Percentages are also used in business settings to evaluate profits, growth rates, and other statistics.

#### Why Use a Calculator?

While calculating percentages manually can be straightforward, using an online calculator saves time and ensures accuracy. Just enter your obtained marks and the total marks, and the calculator will instantly provide your result.
