$\frac{3}{8}$
To calculate probability, we need to divide the number of chances for a certain outcome to occur by the total number of outcomes. In this case, there are $3$ numbers greater than $5$ on the spinner, and $8$ numbers in total. When we divide $3$ by $8$, we get $\frac{3}{8}$, which is the probability of getting a number greater than $5$.
