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 $10$.

$3 \frac{1}{2} = 3 \frac{1 \times 50}{2 \times 50} = 3 \frac{50}{100} = 3.50$

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

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