Question :
Can we perform the four operations of add, subtract, divide or multiply Per Cent Numbers ?

Answer :
No. It cannot be done. Normal arithmetical operations cannot be carried out with per cent numbers. Per cent helps you compare two numbers.
For Example,
When you say sixty per cent of the people who attended the function were women. What you are actually doing is you are comparing with the total number of people who attended the function.
