 Question from 2, a student: 38/50 in a percent

Hi,

A percent is the numerator of a fraction which has 100 as its denominator. Thus for example 28% is $\large \frac{28}{100}$ and $\large \frac{67}{100}$ is 67%.

Can you write a fraction which is equivalent to $\large \frac{38}{50}$ that has a denominator of 100?
