$\frac{1}{8}$

#### Explanation:

Because x% means the amount of $x$ in $100$, x%=x/100.

Here, 12.5%=12.5/100=125/1000.

If you divide both the numerator and denominator of the fraction by $125$, you get $\frac{1}{8}$, which is your answer.

See below

#### Explanation:

For writing a percentage in fraction, divide it by hundred.

 12.5% = 12.5/100

$\to \frac{125}{1000}$

$\to \frac{{\cancel{125}}^{1}}{{\cancel{1000}}^{8}}$

$\to \frac{1}{8}$

So, the simplest form is $\frac{1}{8}$
