An example of percent to goal calculation

Let's say you are collecting money to buy a car, and your goal is to collect a total of $15,500. So far, you have collected $8,500. To measure your progress as a percentage, you would have to first divide your progress value (i.e., 8,500) by your goal value (i.e., 15,500) and then multiply the result by 100 to convert it into a percentage:

(8,500 / 15,500) × 100 ≈ 54.84

Meaning your progress as a percentage is approximately 54.84%.
