$\displaystyle \frac{3}{8}=0.375$, by expanding the fraction, or by long division.
One way to do this is to expand the fraction so its denominator is 1000: $\displaystyle \frac{3}{8}=\frac{3\times 125}{8\times 125}=\frac{375}{1000}=0.375.$ Another way is to perform long division, $3.000\div 8.$ The quotient is $0.375$
