How to display the % sign with the returned results

I'd like to have the % sign displayed when the query below returns the percentage results. How can that be accomplished? Thanks for your help.

      declare @total decimal
      select @total = COUNT(*)
      FROM [myDatabase].[dbo].[myTable]

      Select COUNT(*) as [Count], cast(COUNT(*)/@total*100 as numeric(10,0)) as [Percentage], Letter
      FROM [myDatabase].[dbo].[myTable]
       group by Letter

No, I just want to display a pie chart on a web page. Right now it displays the pie chart, but it doesn't have the % sign after the numbers.

Try

Select COUNT(*) as [Count], cast(COUNT(*)/@total*100 as VARCHAR(50))+ '%' as [Percentage], Letter
      FROM [myDatabase].[dbo].[myTable]
       group by Letter;
