88.9%

#### Explanation:

To change a fraction into a percent, do the division and then multiply by 100%

100% = 100/100= 1

Multiplying by $1$ does not change the value, just what it looks like.

8/9 xx 100% = 88.9%

Or you can show the decimal version:

$\frac{8}{9} = 0.88888888 \ldots = 0. \overline{8}$

0.888888.. = (88.8888...)/100 = 88.9%

(A fraction with a denominator of $100$ is a percent.)
