If you have two numbers, A and B, then the percentage of B that is represented by A is: (A/B)*100

If the price of 12 pencils is x, and 1x is the profit he makes from 8x, then the percentage percentage profit is:

(1x/8x)*100

By rules of multiplication, 1x/8x = (1/8)*(x/x) = (1/8)*(1) = 1/8

So, his percentage profit is: (1/8)*100 = (0.125)*100 = 12.5%
