Enter the frequency and the total number into the calculator to determine the frequency percentage. This calculator helps to find out what percentage a frequency is of a total number.

Frequency Percentage Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the frequency percentage.

P = (F / T) * 100


  • P is the frequency percentage (%)
  • F is the frequency of the event or value
  • T is the total number of events or values

To calculate the frequency percentage, divide the frequency of the event or value by the total number of events or values and then multiply by 100 to convert it to a percentage.

What is Frequency Percentage?

Frequency percentage is a statistical measure that represents the proportion of a particular frequency within a set of data. It is often used to express how common or rare a particular event or value is within the data set. This measure is useful in various fields such as statistics, research, and business analysis to understand the distribution of data points.

How to Calculate Frequency Percentage?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Frequency Percentage.

  1. First, determine the frequency (F) of the event or value.
  2. Next, determine the total number (T) of events or values.
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = P = (F / T) * 100.
  4. Finally, calculate the Frequency Percentage (P).
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.
