Definition

Unusual phrase meaning "100%". Derived possibly from confusion over the saying ninety per cent (How can you divide 90 by a cent?) leading to a preference for the mathematically trival expression "cent per cent" (If you divde a cent by a cent, then surely you can't lose anything)

Usage

He scored cent per cent in his exams
