*3/8 expressed as a percentage is '*42.1
.** To do this by yourself, just pull out a calculator, divide the numerator by the denominator, and multiply the number you got by 100. You'll have your percent.**

You can also enter '3/8*100=' into google too,just to make it easier.

here's a better answer:

if 1/4 is 25%, then 1/8 is half that number, or 12.5%.
But, we don't want **one** eighth, we want **three** of them.
3 times 12.5 is 37.5.
**So 3/8 = 37.5%.**
