    • 2010, Der Spiegel, issue 2/2010, page 125:
      Kohlendioxid trägt durch seine Menge mehr als jedes andere Treibhausgas zum Klimawandel bei, doch seine Konzentration in der Luft beträgt weniger als 0,04 Prozent.
      Carbon dioxide contributes by its amount more than any other greenhouse gas to climate change, but its concentration in the air is less than 0.04 percent.

Usage notes[edit]

The plural Prozente is only used to mean different percent values or percentages: „Was sind die genauen Prozente für A und B?“ "What are the exact percentages of A and B?" Otherwise, like in English, the singular is used: fünfzig Prozent "fifty percent".
