Answer:

#3 1/2=3.50=350%#

Explanation:

To convert a fraction into decimal, one needs to transform it so that the fraction is a sum of fractions each or which has a denominator, which is a power of #10#.

#3 1/2=3 (1xx50)/(2xx50)=3 50/100=3.50#

And for conversion to percentage, one needs to multiply this by #100#

Hence #3 1/2=3.50=(3.50xx100)%=350%#
