# [Tex/LaTex] Is it possible to write the ‘%’ symbol in text in LaTeX?

symbols

I'm a beginner trying to use LaTeX.
I tried to write a sentence which includes the %-symbol using \text{}, but the function that the %-symbol has in LaTeX seems to block me from using it in a normal text sentence.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\begin{document}
\maketitle

\text{I can't use the %-symbol}
\end{document}


Very simple, use \ before the %:
\text{I can't use the \%-symbol}
