Who is asking: Student Question: 

Hi, You can express the fraction ^{3}/_{8} as a decimal by division.Divide 8 into 3 and you get 0.375 not 1.375. I am not sure what you are asking in your second question. Are you looking for three examples of places where we use percents? If there is a sales tax where you live it is expressed as a percent. I expect that when you get an exam graded in school the result is expressed as a percent. Also if you have a bank account there there is probably an interest rate associated with it which is exprressed as a percent. Penny
