__Misconception of Percentage__:

__Reason__:If a ratio has its numerator less than the denominator ==> The numerator is relatively smaller in size than the total.

If the numerator is larger than the denominator ==> The numerator is bigger in size than the total.

An example can illustrate the concept.

Example:

If a costume is now priced at 90% of its original, $100, it means that the price is not only $90.

It is lesser than the original, since the ratio is 90 / 100 or 0.9.

If the costume is newly priced at 120% of its original, $100, it means that the price is now at $120!

A price value more than the original.

It is a practical real-life number.

**Percentage can be more than 100%.****The numerator can be more than the denominator.**

Interesting? You bet.

:) Happy maths learning.
