14 parts out of a total of 24 parts. 24 carat gold is pure gold, so 14 carat is 58.3% gold (the balance is generally silver).
But that is a measure of the gold parts-per-thousand, or 583 parts-per-thousand in 14 k gold, not a measure by weight. Because gold is much heavier than the medals added to make the alloy, the percentage of the gold content by weight may be in the 70% to 80% range depending on the mix of copper, silver, and other metals.
