37.5%  as % indicates that it is 100.Replace % with 1/100.  So the equation becomes 37.5*1/100.That becomes 375/1000.  as 375 & 1000 are divisible by 5. It becomes 75/200.  But again you can divide it with 5, so it becomes 15/40.  But again you can divide it with 5, so it becomes 3/8.  This you can't divide with any number.So this is the answer.  So the steps are:  37.5%  37.5 * 1/100  37.5 / 100  375 / 1000  75 / 200  15 / 40  3 / 8. If you want a decimal just divide 3 by 8 = 0.375 Fraction form: 3/8 Decimal: 0.375
