If 0° = 0% and 90° = 100%, then isn't it just a straight relationship - nothing to do with TAN?

(It's easier to remember, if you know, what x% inclination even means: after 100 meters going "flat", how many meters did the slope go up? (= imagine a right-angled triangle) If the answer is "100", then this triangle obviously has 45° angle)
So, if all you got is the angle, then the inclination in percent is indeed the TAN of the angle * 100.
