Thanks, SherAnswer by tutorcecilia(2152)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!1/8 can be thought of as 1 divided by 8. Think of the fraction bar as a division symbol in which you divide the numerator by the denominator. 1/8 = 0.125 . Example: 8/1 = 8 divided by 1 = 8 Example: 3/36 = 3 divided by 36 = .08333 Example: 36/3 = 36 divided by 3 = 12 . Now to change any of these decimals into a percentage, just multiply by 100%. 1/8 = 0.125 X 100% = 12.5% 3/36 = .0833 x 100% = 8.33% 36/3 = 12 x 100% =1200%
