Most situations involve percentages less than 100.

In a sale a percentage is taken off the full price so you pay less than the full price, less than 100%.

When you toss a coin at the start of a sporting match your chances of winning the toss are one-half or 50%.

Comparison situations can involve percentages greater than 100%.

For example the price of a house was $200,000 in 2000 and $280,000 in 2010.

Compared to the $200,000 the house is now worth 140% of what it was in 2000.
