Writing about percentages

When describing a graph, use percentages creatively to show your range of language.

4% of students failed the exam.

The above sentence is accurate. There are other ways to refer to 4% though.

 

Consider the following:

A tiny fraction of students failed the exam.

A very small number of students failed the exam.

Very few students failed the exam.

An almost insignificant proportion of the students failed the exam.

A minority of students failed the exam.

What could you write instead of 25% ? Or 24% ? Or 32% ?
