## Calculating Percent Progress to Goal

Determining the percentage of progress towards a goal is a common metric used in project management, fitness tracking, fundraising, and personal development. It provides a clear indicator of how much progress has been made and how much more effort is needed to reach the goal.

The formula to calculate the percent progress to a goal is expressed as:

\( \text{Percent Progress} = 100 \times \dfrac{ \text{Progress} }{ \text{Goal} } \)

where:

**Progress**represents the amount of progress made towards the goal.**Goal**represents the total value of the goal set.

By dividing the progress made by the total goal and then multiplying by 100, you obtain the percentage of progress towards the goal.

## Examples

The following examples demonstrate how to calculate the percent progress to a goal using the given formula.

### 1. You have set a goal to save $10,000 for a vacation, and you have currently saved $4,000. What percentage of your goal have you achieved?

#### Answer

Given:

**Progress**= $4,000 (Amount saved)**Goal**= $10,000 (Total savings goal)

The formula to calculate the percent progress to goal is:

\( \text{Percent Progress} = 100 \times \dfrac{ \text{Progress} }{ \text{Goal} } \)

Substituting the given values into the formula:

\( \text{Percent Progress} = 100 \times \dfrac{4000}{10000} \)

Simplifying further:

\( \text{Percent Progress} = 100 \times 0.4 = 40\% \)

Therefore, you have achieved 40% of your savings goal.

### 2. A fundraising campaign has a goal of raising $50,000, and so far, $35,000 has been raised. What percentage of the goal has been reached?

#### Answer

Given:

**Progress**= $35,000 (Amount raised)**Goal**= $50,000 (Fundraising goal)

The formula to calculate the percent progress to goal is:

\( \text{Percent Progress} = 100 \times \dfrac{ \text{Progress} }{ \text{Goal} } \)

Substituting the given values into the formula:

\( \text{Percent Progress} = 100 \times \dfrac{35000}{50000} \)

Simplifying further:

\( \text{Percent Progress} = 100 \times 0.7 = 70\% \)

Therefore, 70% of the fundraising goal has been reached.

### 3. You aim to read 12 books this year, and by the end of June, you have finished 5 books. What percentage of your reading goal have you completed?

#### Answer

Given:

**Progress**= 5 books (Number of books read)**Goal**= 12 books (Total reading goal)

The formula to calculate the percent progress to goal is:

\( \text{Percent Progress} = 100 \times \dfrac{ \text{Progress} }{ \text{Goal} } \)

Substituting the given values into the formula:

\( \text{Percent Progress} = 100 \times \dfrac{5}{12} \)

Simplifying further:

\( \text{Percent Progress} = 100 \times 0.4167 = 41.67\% \)

Therefore, you have completed approximately 41.67% of your reading goal for the year.

### 4. A marathon runner has a goal of running 500 kilometers in a month and has run 275 kilometers so far. What percentage of the goal has been achieved?

#### Answer

Given:

**Progress**= 275 kilometers (Distance run so far)**Goal**= 500 kilometers (Total running goal)

The formula to calculate the percent progress to goal is:

\( \text{Percent Progress} = 100 \times \dfrac{ \text{Progress} }{ \text{Goal} } \)

Substituting the given values into the formula:

\( \text{Percent Progress} = 100 \times \dfrac{275}{500} \)

Simplifying further:

\( \text{Percent Progress} = 100 \times 0.55 = 55\% \)

Therefore, the marathon runner has achieved 55% of the running goal.
