[PLUG] C Question (Off Topic?)

Hello all,

I'm a beginner trying to learn C and I have a question. I realize this isn't a
C mailing list, however, I know there are a lot of programmers on this list
and I'd rather post here than somewhere else. I hope you don't mind.

I want to use the % symbol as part of a string literal within a printf()
statement. The % symbol is used as a conversion specifier, such as %d,
indicating a decimal integer. I understand this. What I can't seem to find--in
my many books--is how to use the % symbol as part of a string.
    printf("Congratulations. You saved 20%.\n");

Any suggestions?  TIA
