Help to disable "% of" in math input?

I’d like kids to just enter 65% as their answer, but when the % sign is typed in a math input, the word of pops of after it.

Any suggestion on how to make it NOT do this?

I’m not aware of a way, so I usually just make “%” the suffix of the input box so that students don’t have to input that.

I like @pirsquared 's suggestion as do that all the time when units would mess up the input. Alternatively, in the instructions to the students above the math input box you can say something like “Enter only a number as your answer”

I tried putting the percent symbol as the suffix, but it’s so far from the input of the student answer, a few kids still put the percent symbol.
Just wish there was a way to turn that off.
Thanks for the suggestions though.
