Sometimes, people say “Give 110% of your effort.” Is it possible to give 110% of your effort? Is there ever a situation where you might have a percent over 100? If no, explain why. If yes, give a scenario where a percent over 100 makes sense.

  1. I'd say that while it's strictly not possible, it could make sense if you define 100% as the maximum possible effort under normal circumstances.

    For example, if you went to a strength test facility, and found you could not lift more than 300 lbs, it's still quite possible that in an extremely stressful situation you could find it possible to exceed that "100%" maximum.

  2. Following Steve's explanation, you can also have an increase by over 100%. For example, a price could increase by 200% - if the original price was $200 and then doubled to $400. This is possible because the original price was $200 - so 100% of the price is $200. When it doubles, so does the percentage - as an increase of 200%.

  3. Yes, you can go over 100%. For example, when you do the daily required amount of exercise per day. That would mean you completed your daily required exercise 100%. But, if you kept exercising, that would mean you go over your daily required exercise. Which would mean that, you went over 100%.
