Examples of percent in a Sentence

  1. Senior Chief Slabinski:

    I ’m trying to direct what everybody’s got going on, trying to see what’s going on with John Chapman ; I ’m already 95 percent certain in my mind that John Chapman’s been killed, that’s why I was like, ‘ OK, Air Force officials’ve got to move. ’.

  2. Erica Rannestad:

    The United States continued to import large volumes of gold jewelry in October, gold prices averaged 25 percent lower that month than a year earlier, buoying demand for jewelry made with gold amid a strong United States dollar.

  3. Benito Mussolini:

    Race! It is a feeling, not a reality: ninety-five percent, at least, is a feeling. Nothing will ever make me believe that biologically pure races can be shown to exist today. Amusingly enough, not one of those who have proclaimed the "nobility" of the Teutonic race was himself a Teuton. Gobineau was a Frenchman, Chamberlain, an Englishman; Woltmann, a Jew; Lapouge, another Frenchman.

  4. Greg Rutherford:

    We have tried to get it 100 percent ready in time. Sadly I have made it worse on the first landing and I am currently unable to move my neck, the doctor thinks it is a bad whiplash but it won't affect my Double Olympic bid. I am positive the British Athletics medical staff will be able to fix it over the next week.

  5. The Russian nuclear physicist:

    It's my dream, i think the two countries can be allies, because together, we can do many things. Stepping on each other's toes won't be good for anyone. Edward Lozansky pointed to the support provided by Russia after 9/11, when Moscow helped facilitate transit of material for U.S. forces in Afghanistan, as an example of Russian cooperation. As the political relationship between America and Russia now founders, Lozansky, still Edward Lozansky, works behind the scenes, organizing scientific and cultural exchanges between the two countries. Meanwhile, people in Moscow say anti-Americanism is at an all-time high, worse even than it was back in Soviet days. A recent poll by the Levada Center in Moscow, which is as close as there is to an independent pollster, found 70 percent of Russians have a negative view of United States. It looks like anti-Americanism is a newly found synonym for Russian patriotism.
