Answer:

#3/8 = 37.5%#

Explanation:

A fraction can be changed to a percent in different ways.

  • Make an equivalent fraction with the denominator 100

#" "3/8 xx 12.5/12.5 = 37.5/100 = 37.5%#

  • Divide the numerator by the denominator to get a decimal, then write as a fraction with a denominator of 100.
    Two decimal places represent hundredths

#" "3div 8 = 0.375 = 37.5/100 = 37.5%#

  • Multiply the fraction by 100%

#" "3/8 xx 100% = 37.5%#

Note than #xx100%# is the same as #xx1#.

The value is not changed, only the way it is written.
