$0.04$

#### Explanation:

Let the number be $x$

We know that

color(blue)(0.5%=0.5/100

So if we multiply 0.5%  with $8$ we get $x$

$\rightarrow \frac{0.5}{100} \cdot 8 = x$

$\rightarrow {\cancel{0.5}}^{1} / {\cancel{100}}^{200} \cdot 8 = x$

$\rightarrow \frac{1}{\cancel{200}} ^ 25 \cdot {\cancel{8}}^{1} = x$

$\rightarrow x = \frac{1}{25}$
