To see if 89% is less than eight ninths, we need to convert eight ninths to a decimal so that the two can be readily compared.

We do this by multiplying 8 by 100 and dividing by 9 - 800 ÷ 9 = 88.8888888 (recurring) %.

So, if the 89% is exact, then it is not less than eight ninths.

Depending on the degree of precision required, 88.8888888% would usually be rounded up to 89% and in that case the two amounts would be considered equal.
