Get the percentage as a whole number


I am trying to return the percentage a single figure

declare @countOfAll INT
select @countOfAll = COUNT(*) from tbl_QuizDetails

declare @Type1 INT
select @Type1= COUNT(*) from tbl_QuizDetails WHERE QuizType='Type1'

SELECT (@Type1 /@countOfAll)*100 AS Type1

Open in new window

However, the returned value is 0 although I have checked the values Type1=1812 and CountOfAll=3242

Am I doing something wrong to return the value as 56?

SELECT CAST((@Type1* 1.0 /@countOfAll)*100 AS int) AS Type1

Change SELECT (@Type1 /@countOfAll)*100 AS Type1
SELECT (@Type1 * 1.0 /@countOfAll)*100 AS Type1
to display as a whole number
SELECT CAST((@Type1 * 1.0 /@countOfAll)*100 AS DECIMAL(10,0)) AS Type1

Try this.

SELECT (@Type1 * 100.0 /@countOfAll) AS Type1
