Fractions can be used in the same way percentages are used. To declare a portion of something else through multiplication.

Ex Half of an 80.

in fractions
1/2 * 80 = 40

in Percents
50% of 80 (0.50*80) = 40

When the fraction is smaller than 1, you will get less than the full 80. (as in our example where we got 40). When the fraction is 1, then you get the full 80. When the fraction is more than one you get more than 80.

There percentage equivalent would be a percentage less than 100 gives less than 80. A percentage of 100 gives the full 80. A percentage greater than 100 give more than 80.

A fraction of 1 is the same as a percentage of 100 (100%). Both mean the same thing.

So to answer your question, a fraction greater than 1 would mean that the equivalent percent is greater than 100%.
