If x 0, which of the following is equal to 1.25 percent of x? x/80, x/8, x/4, 5x/8, 3x,4

I feel like the simplest way to solving this problem is recognizing that .125 converted into a fraction is 1/8. The decimal they provide in the example isn't .125, but .0125. Thus, you can determine that the denominator is greater and the fraction is 1/80, or x/80.

Is that acceptable?
