Hi there! Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

If we have the number 99 with an uncertainty of 1, then the percent uncertainty is the ratio 1/99, which in this case equals 0.0101, or 1.01%

If we have the number 100 with an uncertainty of 1, then the percent uncertainty is the ratio 1/100, which equals 0.01, or 1.00%

Please let me know if you need any clarification. Always glad to help!
