Answer:

#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:

#8/9 = 0.88888888 ... = 0.bar8#

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

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