What is 3/8 as a percentage

$$\frac38=\frac{x}{100}$$

Now just solve for x.

$$\frac{3(100)}{8}=x \\~\\ \frac{300}{8}=x$$

37.5 %

Or you can do this:

We know that 1/4=25% or 0.25, so 1/8 is 25%/2 which equals 12.5% or 0.125. Multiply this by 3 to get 0.375 or 37.5%. Both ways get accurate answers.
